Well done the 3 of you, a great achievement as its a very long one. Claire and I did the short bit from the Swan to Radcot, which was also very nice, but very full of unfriendly fishers of men - wait till David W comes along with his film crew!!!!!

> What a heavenly swim with Pauline and Chloe. It rained a bit; we wore wetsuits and I felt guilty but, since we were in the water for three and a half hours, I think that it was sensible. We stopped at the footbridge for flapjacks and coffee and then swam on the last half mile to the car park. Lunch at the Riverside pub just along the river in the blazing sunshine.
> Two major interactions with swans. Where is Adam when you need him? Swanning off? Ducking out? I got chased by a herd of cows who appeared Zulu style over the brow of the river bank as I slithered inelegantly back in. One house to lust after with a Private sign that just made me get out to look.
