We went to Cyprus and dived out there together and it was a great start. I saw the wreck of the Zenobia on the wall of the dive centre and said I would come back and dive that. I have still to do it but it is in the plans. During 2004 I also qualified as an Advanced Open Water diver and found a diving group over at Yorkshire-Divers.com with whom I have done most of my diving.
In December of 2004 I agreed to go on a wreck diving trip to Scapa flow with some divers from YD, this meant I needed to improve my diving skills, so I booked on a Technical Diving Course for June 2005, and the inbetween time was a time for me to practice and get better. I changed my equipment so that I now dive with a twinset which is two cylinders banded together and also extra cylinders for decompression diving. So during 2005 I dived on the south coast, Devon, Cornwall, Wales, NE Coast, Scottish West coast and also Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands.
Since then, we have regularly returned to our favourite dive centre in the UK down on the Lizard in Cornwall, at Porthkerris Divers. In 2015, our three eldest children also gained their PADI open water qualifications.
