My family love nothing better than to jump
into the water for a splash about and a bit
of a swim, summer or winter, rain or shine.
I’m the least brave of them all - happy to
be the one taking the photos and giving out
cozy hugs and praise when they emerge
shivering, but elated.
Living in Cornwall these outings tend to
be swims in the sea. As I get older I hear of
more and more people celebrating being
wild and free in the water. I am curious
and tempted, though not brave and shy
of the neoprene look. I’ve read about the
health benefits of cold water swimming and
anything that boosts your immune system
and puts a smile on your face has to be
worth a try?
My idea of heaven is floating in a calm
beautiful pond in warm to hot water - more
of a hot tub with lilies in. I’m building up
to giving the cold water a try - I want to
do it … meanwhile I shall day dream of the
zen like experience shown on our new cork
placemats - Wild Swimmers.
