First River Swim in Lincolnshire!

Wow ... we did it! We swam in the River Witham - secret squirrel location - with Dad on lifeguard duty. Nic in first as usual - but tentative and keeping within reach of the rope and lifebuoy. Sandra 'tombstoned' in - it must be 20 feet deep - and then straight out to the middle. Once I got my confidence I felt okay and it was just amazing to feel the cold, green water - managed to keep out of the way of the pike.

Sandra's posting will follow with news of her sneaky reservoir swim too - not to be outdone by me spending Sunday afternoon sunning myself at Peterborough lido - 20 degrees in the clear water - beautiful!

Here we are getting in - Dad's video 'tek-neek' no better than Nic's.
