    Diving The Bryza Wreck, Hel, Poland

    September 14, 2013^

    Having the boat confiscated cost us about six hours, and at least one dive.

    But, Kamil found another boat, so the plans changed.

    The first dive of the day was going to be on the Bryza Wreck, which was a Cutter Ship that was purposely sunk for divers just several years ago.

    Igor was teaching some class, I’m not exactly sure which one, but I was to tag along and follow.

    I think at this point, they are pretty certain I can manage myself underwater.

    Igor and the divers gear up.

    We swim to the buoy that marks where the ship is.

    Most divers had double tanks – that is extremely macho, in diver terms.

    Part of the front, above the bow.

    I’m following the group, trying not to be a burden on the class.

    Igor was easy to spot – he was diving with a side mounted cave configuration.

    We inspect the hull for leaks – I was amazed at what little sea growth is on these wrecks.

    The ocean water in the Baltic is also not very salty; it’s almost like lake water.

    A porthole.

    A safety stop to reduce the possibility of death.

    Kasia mans the compressors.

    I declined another dive today.

    It is getting late and I have an issue – Igor is leaving tomorrow night and can drop me off at the Gdansk train station.

    However, I don’t believe the trains run that late.

    Kamil can drop me off in Gdansk on Monday.

    Either way, once I reach Warsaw, I need a place to stay.

    I walked into town to use the internet and to see what I could do.
