Food in France

French cooking, or cuisine, is famous worldwide. French cooks make delicious breads, pastries, cheeses, soups, meats, and sauces. Breads are popular, and so are pastries called croissants. Different regions have their own local specialties. Roquefort cheese, for example, comes from a village in southern France. There it is made and aged in the village’s deep caves.

France is also known for its wines, which are sold all over the world. The regions of France called Burgundy, Champagne, and Bordeaux all have types of wine named after them. Grapes are grown and made into wine at vineyards.

There are a few small boulders and rocks but unless you are interested in the small marine creatures, like shrimps and prawns, that live among the anemones, this site is not worth bothering about, even at slack water, which is the only time you could reach the seabed. A pleasant dive into a thick kelp bed with a number of nice little gullies and a few crevices that often hide crustaceans. In the latter months of summer, masses of huge lion’s mane jellyfish are whipped over the reefs of the Outer Farne Islands. Their poisonous stinging cells, sometimes 10 metres long, are dragged through the kelp, leaving the broken thread-like ribbons trapped in the fronds. They very commonly get caught around the regulator’s second stage and against the diver’s mouth and lips, leaving a nasty burning sensation that lasts for three or four hours. The sides of the Off Bus rise up fairly steeply from the seabed at 20 metres, up to 12-15 metres, and then it tapers away north into deeper water. The reef top is around 100 metres wide, east to west. The current and its direction are the same as the last dive site but the little gullies which criss-cross over the Bus from east to west provide a little shelter from the ferocity of the overhead gale when the tide is running. This is definitely a slack water dive site. A superb dive around the edge of the cliff face, which has a number of monolithic boulders, covered in the same beautiful marine life as seen on dives and.
