Monte Mare with Peter

Today, I took peter to the Monte Mare Indoor Dive Center, near Bonn. We did two dives, checked out the pool, took photos and completed some more exercises. Afterwards, we went to the huuuge sauna center, featuring some thirteen saunas. The spa area was really pretty, too, and extends into a large outdoor areal. Unfortunately, the is positivley all-nude (and mixed sex), so I could not take photos to show you. Diving was particularly fun after the sauna; totally relaxed. Also, we were positively surprised by the sauna ramaining open just until midnight. And thanks to Manfred, we had 2-4-1 coupons, saving us a good 40 Euros. Yet another nice day.

Nemo 33 with Peter

Today I took Peter to the 7 p.m dive session in the Nemo 33, Brussels. There was not much business, and only four other divers besides us. Hence, things ere much more relaxed than usually, and we very much enjoyed the pool. The one thing we learned was that a structurally complex pool can be quite fun, even if it only has blue tiles. Also, 33 meters are quite deep. The water was a pleasant 30 degrees, and free of chlorine. Super fun. Afterwards, we dined at the excellent Vietnamese restaurant inside Nemo 33. Nice day.

Edersee with Peter

In the morning, I took Peter for two dives at the Edersee (TZ2). We performed basic ascent-exercises, and afterward looked for pike and schools of little fish. Due to all the dives with Jo and the German army, this type of training had become second nature. Peter did well, and performed all exercises entirely satisfactory.
