Just a quick note to say thanks to all the swimmers on Sunday for a great swim and a special thanks to Sef and Jeremy for organising everything. It was good to be back in the river again after a couple of years off (why did I leave it so long). Great views and a nice current. The only thing I need to do now is stop shivering.
Not sure what I'm looking forward to most. Another bob down the river or the next email invite. It'll be quite a challenge to beat the one below :-)

Mandy and Christine too?
You come to Thames swim party #44 on SUNDAY 14th APRIL at 10.30am.
You meet me in car
park near Boulter's lock
(only £1 for the day) at 10.30am:
Maybe we take our clothes off yes? Maybe put on some rubber? My friend osteopath take care of you.
Maybe we get in friend's car - he big man in mac - work for Government - shuttle up to
Cookham unisex outdoor changing rooms here (easy
drive straight up Lower
Cookham Road /
Sutton Road (A4094):
We have brisk
walk to Cookham
lock across Odney Common. We maybe have a little fun with birch twig.
We enter water here at Cookham lock:
Astor have swimming pool but much nicer in river no? Maybe we have
little splash-splash past Lord Astor's house, Cliveden, maybe look at
who else is in the pool but saying nothing shhh. We want to have good
long swim, no? so you can tell me everything that man in mac said about
British naval movements down CLIVEDEN DEEP (very deep).
You think this too cold for swim party? Back home in Soviet Union,
me and other naval attaches, we have swim parties in freezing Baltic. My
babicka, she have swim party for hours in -20 degrees.
Maybe we swim for 3.3km. If precious darling get cold, we get out
early, or get in a little later - plenty places for bit of nooky on
bank. My friend osteopath sort you out. He bring hot flask and biscuit. Naughty friend.
Rice-Davies, he already been to swim party here, he say you stay close
to me to RIGHT as we get to lock as current very strong, and I very
strong too, and then we swim very hard up final stretch up lock cut. He
say Thames path is on right and we can get out early if have to. He also
say can do extreme wading.
Then, we get out here at Boulter's lock:
If you good girl, we take off rubber and I take you for lunch. At lock is Boulter Restaurant with Terrace
Bar. We get binoculars out and see what other naval attaches are doing. Maybe you go tell British Government man what Soviet ships are doing in Cliveden Deep.
sit on chair anyway you like. You want keep clothes off? Is fine. My
friend, osteopath he give you massage. Afterwards, we run you back pick
up car from Cookham.
Very hush hush secret swim party. You tell everyone yes? Bring friends?
