Bucket List Swims

We often ramble on to each other and others about the "wouldn't that be cool" swims.  Often it then results in us signing up for something that we probably shouldn't have but these are the adventures that have yet to happen due to various factors.  So what are our bucket list swims, races, holidays and...

Lake District 2017

After our week in the lake district last year, we were keen to do a longer Buttermere swim and also explore some areas of the lakes we hadn’t got to. Saturday (Manda) Saturday we arrived in Penrith accompanied by David and Brian to pick up our very small hire car, which with 3 tall adults,... Continue Reading →

Sa Dragonera, Mallorca.

Kate, Brian, Pivo and Charlie (who we know from Tuesday night swimming amongst other things) joined me on the trip, whilst Katie, unfortunately for me, was busy at home. The race...
