“Swimming is a rite of passage, a crossing of boundaries: the line of the shore, the bank of the river, the edge of the pool, the surface itself, when you enter the water, something like metamorphosis happens. Leaving behind the land, you go through the looking-glass surface and enter a new world”. Roger Deakin, Waterlog (1999).
This is a short talk with a few slides to help you get started with some of the practical aspects of swimming outdoors. It will include where to go locally, who to go with, what to take with you, what to worry about and last but not least, the multitude of benefits for your health!
