Waterblog

Waterblog

Inspired by Roger Deakin’s Waterlog, Abbie and I are going to write our own Waterlog, however we have decided on a new name, Waterblog. We really liked this quote in Deakin’s book “Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes it water. And nobody knows what that is…” D.H.Lawrence  (We like the third thing best!)

So this is our waterblog, anything water related, swimming, paddleboarding, or just general splashing about :)

Part one of our waterblog for 2014! (April and May)
