Sounds like it would be a fun place to scuba dive, assuming the water isn't too silty. Do know if they dive in the lake?

Re: Crater Lake — The Most Beautiful Lake In The World(!?)

GarryRF ·
Certainly is beautiful DrF !! Those snow capped mountains scare me off from wanting to dive into the lake. People do apply odd descriptions to wonderful things. My favourite is "It was breath-taking" The number of times I've applied the Heimlich manoeuvre to someone who's been choking on a magnificent vista. Please tell me - are the Canadians addicted to calling everything "Awesome" too ?
Comment

Re: Crater Lake — The Most Beautiful Lake In The World(!?)

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for your comments, Garry. The lake, as you would expect for one so high up, is too cold for most people to want to swim in it. But it's pretty awesome, eh? I'd say the "eh?" is perhaps the best way to identify a Canadian. Awesome I've heard used most everywhere I go, and Awesome certainly can be applied to this lake. Hope you have a very pleasant New Year, GarryRF!

Only to be found in the Mediterranean are the delicious Meyer Lemons. A cross with lemon and a mandarin orange. A sweet and juicy - less acidic fruit. Colour of a lemon and shape of an orange. Wish they were available when I get home to the UK . Delicious !

Re: Limone, Lake Garda, Italy

PortMoresby ·
"Only to be found in the Mediterranean..." Not really. Meyer lemons are native to China and have been grown in the US since 1908. I can find them just about anytime in my ordinary local supermarket in California. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meyer_lemon

Re: Limone, Lake Garda, Italy

We used to see them only when visiting California, but the California-grown ones (and some from Mexico) are now available regularly in New York, too.

Re: Limone, Lake Garda, Italy

DrFumblefinger ·
I used to have a Meyer Lemon tree in my yard when I lived in California. It was a dwarf tree, no more than 1.5 meters tall, but it produced more than 300 lemons each year, more than we could consume. I miss that tree!

Re: Limone, Lake Garda, Italy

In Spain they take the largest, roundest fruits. Cut off the top and scoop out the inside. Fill with Lemon flavour Ice Cream and put the top back on. Wrap in food wrap. Freeze them. Buy them in the store next to the Ice Lollies. No drip Ice Cream !!
