Seriously, there is wreck diving available, but viz is a thing.  @Alex tell Dennis how shit the viz is down there.....

Conversation between me and Alex about 8 years ago when he was a commercial diver around here, and I was in the Maldives.

G - I saw Manta today
A - I got hit in the head by fish, I think it was a Mullet, but I could not see it

Great pictures all.

Love that shit with the old navy stuff @Giles.

Those Kayak's have been a great investment.

Thank you. Just popped out with @Madame Buttonfly again.  Weather is too good not to at the moment. 

This is the Portsmouth Upper Harbour Ammunition Facility.  Munitions are towed on barges from Defence Munitions Gosport, upstream of here and loaded by crane onto this structure (which is completely self-supporting, generating its own electricity etc.), then the munitions are loaded onto warships as and when needed.  It's in the middle of the harbour, so if it goes bang, Gosport and Portsmouth will come off pretty unscathed....

^ Sweet. That has always been one of my fave Maiden songs. Giving that treatment was a stroke of genius.

Well behind @goosehd in the cropping stakes, but am just beginning to crop other stuff than plums.....

Got into some golden Chanterelles, Lobster mushroom, and Reishi. Great day in the mountains with the family!

Amazing! God I loved that show when I was a kid. When is it airing? Need to prime my VPN to get UK TV.
