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)
13/4/2014 First sea swim of the year – I managed a swim to the rocks and back!

Paddleboarding and swimming at Kingsdown – first camp of the year
Stream trekking at Brockhill park
Swimming in Lake 1 Lydd

Dragon boat paddling on the SUP
First swim in Brittany – Plage du Val, near St Malo – still quite cold! We loved the islands – if it was warmer I would have swum out to one
Indoor pool at Chateau de les Eaux, Normandy
Racing in the outdoor pool at the same campsite – had the pool to ourselves
Part 2 June and July 2014 coming soon….
