I believe the shore diving is fantastic...you can't get cheaper than that! and I will get my sister to look for a decent but cheap campsite...

Down in Cornwall next week, so if you have any particular shore sites to recommend I will see if I can check them out and report back.

If you go for Devon or Dorset when you are in the UK we could join you, but I think another trek to Cornwall might be a bit much.

I have just recieved this from my Sister,
re: Diving. This guy has his own boat and takes parties out to wrecks and other places of interest. He is called Richard KINGS and can be contacted on Plymouth 01752 663247. Before we can do it, we will need to know how many, what qualifications, what you want etc etc.
Also we think the best place for your friends to camp will be at Riverside Caravan Park, just a couple of hundred yards from the big Sainsburys Supermarket on the way into Plymouth. Tele number 01752 344122 but again, they will want to know how many persons, tents, how long for etc etc.

I need to know how many people are interested, so a show of hands please...

Due to lack of interest I am not going to book a camp site or a dive boat for my UK visit next week, anybody who wants to meet up with me for a shore dive any where along the south coast can contact me while I'm in Plymouth, I will be there for the 27th, 28th and 29th of September on 0752-661801 or on my mobile 0031-615392554...

Hi Dave, I understand that its a long way to travel and that some of us are going away to Eygpt soon on holiday, I am going to Plymouth to visit my son and my sister, I just thought I could meet up with some of our southern members for a dive, if anyone is interested in coming down to dive with me then ok, I don't want everyone to think that I am disapointed with the reaction from YD's, I'm not! I totaly understand the distance and costs involved for our northern members to travel, maybe next time I go to Liverpool we can get together for a weekends diving, although that wont be untill next year now, anyway you all know where I will be next week, having a pie and a decent pint of bitter! and if anyone wants a visit to Holland after Christmas they will be made very welcome in my home...
