sounds a lot more fun than wallowing around in drysuits at the bottom of
gruesome gravel pit in Gloucestershire!  Glad you had such a good time -
sounds like you might be needing anti-malarials for the next

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.


See you all soon




Ps No swans were hurt in the practical research for this article (but i
got nettled)
