There's nothing like coming across a Turtle whilst your swimming and watching it slowly swim to the water surface to get a breath of air. It's a wonder of nature with it's patterned hard shell, cute little flippers, scrawny neck and entrancing eyes! I had a great encounter yesterday and... Continue reading

Mados and Pomfred mingle together here! Another beautiful sunrise. The air was a bit fresh though at 11 degrees! Water temp... Continue reading

Great blog again Anne. I think the 'strange fish' is a 'Stars and Stripes Pufferfish'. Jane Stevenson taught me all the fish names. I miss Jane :-(
Really enjoyed your blog Simon. Great idea to commend and recognise these swimmers. We really do have some amazing people swimming with our group. Thank you all :-)
What a unique and amazing blog Lucy! I think I've read every B&B blog since 2011 and have never read one like this one! You've created a masterpiece! So many people sent photos in. Back to choppy and unclear conditions now...
