Before our holidays Dirk told us about going to Oktoberfest of Munich and after diving in lake Walchensee.And that at our last holiday weekend. Perfect! We wanted to go before to lake Walchensee because another friend told us a lot about the lovely lake and this special spot with its scarp face. So Dirk didn’t need to ask if we are interested, too. YES!!! We invited us ourselves. 😀
While we stayed at lake Attersee he told us what he planned and so we ordered the right gases at Bocki’s a day before. And we agreed meeting for breakfast at 8 in the first café on the left side.
But in the meantime the flow of refugees increased and because of that they introduced border controls. We heart about waiting time for a lot of hours. So we started our tour from Attersee to Walchensee at 5 o‘ clock in the morning. But we passed the border without control and were half an hour before meeting time in the small café. Perfect. With some information about the lake and a lot of laughter we had a good start in the diving day. And there were also no wind so no wind or kite surfer could be on the parking zone for the dive spot.
We met some other diver on the parking zone. After a short briefing and making a dive plan we arranged our equipment and placed our stages with a rope in the water because the entrance isn’t comfortable. Balancing over the stones and with the help of each other we reached into the water with our equipment. But that was no problem.
Boah – what a scarp face! Steep down initially! We needed only to let us fall. And we fell. Lovely! Then we followed it and its beauty with a clear view. Because of our lights there were light actions which let the steep face being more imposing. Gigantic. Unfortunately the bottles come also to an end at the best dive and so we began to finish the dive. But at first: deko! With rising very slowly, the wreck of a car and some grimaces it was a short time. At the second entrance we came out of water and began with gushing about the dive.
We spent our diving break with talking and a piece of apple or cheese cake. In the café it smelt of it in the morning. The granny baked them. And the apple cake was still warm. We died for it.
Our second dive was also at the scarp face but to a special rock formation. That eclipsed everything. That was better again than the first dive. Wow. The two very very good dives ended too fast at ‚Galerie‘.
Actually we wanted to finish our day with pizza but there were no restaurant any more for eating it. So we ate something at a Bavarian restaurant with a bad kitchen. Damn. But the two perfect dives aren’t forgotten.
