Bea was quite keen to give diving a try so we selected the salubrious location of Swildon's Sump 2. First of Bea had the joys of cave diving by having to carry her cylinder down to sump 2. I then kitted everything up. Once ready Bea and I dived through sump 2 and then went across to sump 3. Bea soon decided that cave diving wasn't for her and I didn't want to try and talk her into something like cave diving if she didn't want to do it, so we returned to sump 2. We then packed up all the gear and headed out the cave. At least it's something she can say she has done.

As this was Bea's first ever diving trip and first ever cave dive we only went through sump 2. She seemed to enjoy it but found it quite scary not being able to see anything.
