Do you yearn to dip your toe into the glorious pursuit of wild swimming in lakes, rivers, pools, waterfalls and the sea?
Then this Wild Swimming Guide may propel you to fulfill your quest!
Written by wild swimming enthusiast Flora Jamieson, this is a great gift for both the novice wild swimmer or experienced dipper. It has practical advice, safety tips and health benefits, as well as inspiring quotes, useful resources and beautiful illustrations by Gemma Koomen.
Flora grew up with rivers and canals as a huge part of her childhood – long days spent knee deep in the water with a net and a jar, the scent of meadowsweet and the sharp calls of coots & moorhens in the air. "On hot days we would drag out the old inflatable dinghy, and spend more time in the water than on it2.
As an adult, she still cannot resist the lure of the water, and the thrill and trepidation of following a badly marked footpath, eventually leading to a secret swimming spot. She loves the exhilaration of the cold water, and the contentment post-swim!
