Underwater playground

Nothing special, just my first dip of the year. Not far from Vienna, Austria, It's a bit of an underwater playground with tunnels, boats and structures to fool around in.

And some Austrian German beer can be enjoyed afterwards. Cheers.

Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. A million microbrews around here but I haven't seen Lowenbrau in years.

That's "Classy" Freddie Blassie all right, around 1971, when he was still in his "Vampire" phase of gnawing opponents' foreheads into bloody shards of hanging skin.

Wrestling's always been a family oriented sport.

Depends, just snorkeling around for fun like this, never over 2 minutes, usually go down for closer to 1 min or less.

:D

Yesterday was the first weekend really warm enough to dive over here, so all the rank amateurs were cashing in their scuba lesson gift cards from Xmas and filing up for lessons. I have never seen so many stressed out diving instructors! People panicking, rolling over on there backs, getting lost.. That really is work, really felt bad for the guys teaching them :)

Very nice. Is that an old quarry?

Yes it is, they make great diving sites (for those of us unlucky enough not to have a sea handy)

You really must try the underwater wonderland to be found in the English quarry diving scene. A plethora of old cars, push chairs/bikes, motorcycles, zero visibility and the constant threat of contracting Weils disease make it a diving heaven.

I was supposed to compete at the UK pool championships last week and dive a few sites while I was around, but I tore a ligament in my foot 6 weeks ago and had to cancel the trip. Will get round to it soon I hope.

Be sure to work on your 'Doggy Paddle' first. We're a pretty competitive bunch over here.
