This will be a blog for the next week on Gozo, 2.6.2013, all being well I will post some of my shots and Arthurs, maybe Pete Bullen PeeBee, will contribute.
A little history may be in order to fully appreciate future references.
Winter 2011-12 Arthur (a good mate even though an accountant) came round to dinner, towards the end of this I believed we were going to Gozo in the summer after he had finished measuring sailing boats for the Olympics. At this time he was committed but was not totally sure of the dates. As anyone who had anything to do with papering over the cracks of the Great Spectacle will know this was an inauspicious start! In the event Arthur's commitment was such that he was unable to join Pete and myself in a great week messing about with bits of electronics underwater. We fly out tomorrow night, we should arrive at Moby dives about 0400 hrs (Arthur booked the flights, Pete arranged the taxis, the ferry is in the lap of the gods of Gozo). The good thing is that for a second time having purchased Sport Allowance from Air Malta I don't have any worries about luggage allowance. This allows me to include as well as an Ikelite DSLR housing (with a density approaching that of a small Black Hole.) such probably unnecessary items as a set of twinning bands. Arthur also has this luxury and is still wondering whether to be a Macho Man and dive wet or bring his dry suit and become like a early Japanese reality show contestant filling his dry suit with sweat as he approaches the waters edge.
One quick shot from last year may whet the appetite to follow this odyssey for those of a bizzare turn of mind.
