When we were in Wasdale last summer we saw two guys swimming Wast Water and although we are all now blaming each other, someone (Sarah, Jim or I) said “we should do that next year”. The vague idea has been in the back of our minds and then, before we knew it, it was Easter and a few months to our annual camping trip.
To complicate matters our local swimming pool has been closed for refurbishments. We’ve had to find other pools and I’ve had the most flexibility and have swum most mornings. It has been much harder for Sarah and Jim to find space in their schedules and swimming a distance takes us some time!
