Bettina didn't stay at our hotel so for the next morning we had made appointment with her on a dive site. You will always see the parking lots full over divers in that area. But three women without any men was somehow an exception and even more since all three of us had a camera (Bettina and Katrin both have a DSLR with underwater housing so their gear was even bigger than mine).
We went in and lost Bettina immediately. Not a problem though as she is used to diving alone. So we were not worried (wouldn't have done that with other persons). Unfortunately visibility was not really good. Here are some pics from underwater. It is a mix from all the dives. I don't really have more overwater pics as after the morning dive we went back to a dive shop where I had bought a lamp the day before. It drowned on the first dive that morning so we had to go back to exchange it. Wasn't my fault that water was getting in so they gave me a new one without problems. In the PM we went to a dive site that was the worst of all. Generally it would have been a nice site but you couldn't see anything.
Katrin and Bettina did a night-dive after dinner but I was too tired. Sunday morning Katrin and I did another dive at the hotel dive site. Then we packed out everything in the car and started to head home. On the way back there was a dive site where Katrin had seen skeleton shrimp before. We both love skeleton shrimp so we decided to go there. And they were exactly where Katrin had told me - I just didn't see them.
Didn't know there were red ones. I have them on my pics but they are not in focus... next time we will so at least two dives there....
So here an excursion to the underwater world of Grevelinger Sea...
shrimp cocktail anyone?
The lobster are HUGE there so we had the lamps to shoo them back inside their caves. Don't have a pic of a blue one. That'll have to wait till next time.
Lots of babies...
Sea dahlia with shrimp
Part of this red stuff are skeleton shrimps... I just didn't know that. *arg*
After the last dive we continued our way back home and we decided to do it again...
Life is better in flip flops!
