With the introduction of Dive Against Debris, the act of removing debris underwater and logging data about that debris has become a Project AWARE focus. Sarah Wormald, the Global Scavenger Hunt champion, is one AWARE diver taking the cleanup commitment to the next level.
Thursday - I have had an excellent day with Darren and Katy from Sub-Mission Dive Centre today. They put me in charge of filling cylinders, sorting the equipment logistics and loading the van! Phew! Then, this afternoon, I was also put to work serving customers. I must admit I was a hit with Sub-Mission's regular divers and customers, especially the ladies.
I was still exhausted from my attempt to get to Kenya so I slept most of the day. Unfortunately though I was suffering from nightmares, which were a mix of plastic oceans and sharks with no fins! In fact the nightmares were so vivid that I awoke with a start and hid amongst the foliage to hide from the shark fishermen…but it turned out to be Darren from Sub-Mission! After all of these horrid dreams though I was feeling worried about my sister, Finley. So Katy let me surf the internet to find out how she was.
After a traumatic time trying to get to Kenya, I finally arrived back in the UK at Sub-Mission Dive Centre, in Stoke on Trent. I still had a bit of seaweed wrapped around my dorsal fin when I met Darren and Katy, owners of Sub-Mission Dive Centre.
