Got back last night from a lovely 48 hour vacation with Nancy & Bruce in Inverness. Before I left I swam back and forth across an estuary fed by briny sea water, surrounded by willows and hills of amber grass. I am a Canadian. I grew up swimming in pristine Ontario lakes. I hate chlorine & swiming pools. I was too exhausted and too much in the moment to blog during the Barb events but this swim was left me high on endorphins and in great mood. I am still tired, but I have recovered enough to post my impressions of last week, which I will do asap.
