An early start for Dad and Ben as Ben was of for a morning of diving. After dropping Ben off at half eight in the morning he now takes over the blog…
I was going to be diving with Steve who had been my instructor for previous dives and lessons. Once kit had been issued we made our way to the boat and met the rest of the divers who were a family from Scotland. They were diving with another instructor. The boat journey to St Georges Island only took a few minutes. Kit on we rolled over the side and descended down to 30m. The fish life was fantastic as we saw Blue Fin Tuna, Barracuda and a very large Grouper along with the normal Damsel fish etc. The thermoclines were very evident with a clear definition of where the different temperatures of water were. The surface temperature was 28º dropping to 19º at 30m. The second dive was round to caves and caverns at 30m. There wasn’t enough time to explore the caverns as we had taken our time getting to them. The dives finished we made our way back to Latchi where the rest of the family were waiting for me. Dad now takes up the blog.
After dropping Ben off Dad drove back to the villa to pick up mum and Dan to take them out for breakfast at Debbie’s of Latchi. It is a part of the UK tucked away in a side street in Latchi offering a traditional UK breakfast and sandwich menu. Dan had the English breakfast, mum had the traditional and dad had the works which is a massive plate of food. We picked Ben up at about half one in the afternoon. From there we drove into Polis to sort out dropping off the hire car at the end of the holiday. We then walked into Polis town centre and made our way to Savvas Bar for a small snack. Bens small snack was Pitta filled with chicken mayo and salad with a side order of chips. Dad had waffle with Nutella, mum had Caramel magic waffle and Dan had a banana split.
That evening we made our way into Latchi for a meal at Molos. Excellent food and service with a great range of starters, mains and puddings.
