Wednesday 20th April. Bend in the river.

I was contacted by Jo who came to see the show last week, to join her for a swim.

Knowing I love a river swim, she suggested a good spot a mile walk from where we could park. Beautiful sunny day, we headed together with her friend Rachel and they told me how they live in a small village not far from Penrith and are involved in lots of various ‘active’ and child-orientated events in their community, how they have a group who like to run/walk and more lately, swim (or dip as they called it!).

We walked through some lovely fields full of lambs, past an old church and then reached this glorious deep bend in the river with a pebble beach.

This is my cup of tea! Had a lovely, relatively long dip.

Felt really relaxed with these lovely ladies. Jo runs Fellside Active – offering a personal training service and Rachel has 6 children (!) so you know, that’s like a full time job no?!

Really nice walk and swim and grateful for this time before going indoors for the show.
