    I did a freshwater dive the other day. My first in 5 years. Water temperature was 26 degrees at the surface and 16 degrees at 20 metres. I'd forgotten about that aspect of freshwater diving. Nothing...

    Thanks for the replies. Just arrived. Water temperature is lower than home and too much hassle to organise diving, so left dive kit at home. Not as keen as I used to be!

    We generally only eat meat from animals I have shot. Rabbit, hare, goat, venison, turkey and duck. Cooking game meats well can be a challenge because of the lack of fat, and sometimes strong...

    Cyprus in September is wetsuit territory unless you are doing long technical dives. Personally, I would be in a decent "semi-dry" and a hood, but I feel the cold.
