This summer two of my grandaughters learned to scuba dive, that is to dive with air bottles and breathing apparatus.
The two eldest went wind surfing while on the island of Paros.
Paros is one of the islands of the cyclades. These are known as the windy islands. Perfect for wind surfing which they had already mastered on Poros . Their father is a another wind surf enthusiast and so is their Uncle downunder who will be board surfing as long as he breathes.
12 year old Luli
She and her best friend learnt to scuba dive and loved every minute of it
Two little water sprites
Her older cousin Poppi
Once again loving every minute of it.
The girls couldn't go diving on the, just off shore, old wreck because of rough weather. Instead they dived around Love Bay, swimming with the fish.
Rowing is still the family's number one water sport. However as the children get older their school lessons get more important and there is less time for rowing practice. Three of the five still row and are doing very well. Regattas and meetings have all been postponed this summer because of the virus but hopefully next summer will bring more opportunities for medals and cups.
