Norwich 18 April 2019: 6 months of swims for 60th

A Norwich swim in the Wensum by the Pond Lilies – a reunion after our London ponds and lidos  trip – from Anderson’s Meadow.

On a glorious sunny April evening the river was packed with paddleboarders and kayakers from the Eagle club. Two of a lively group of teenage girls also jumped in the river.

Friends from Norfolk and Suffolk came for a meal afterwards at the lovely riverside pub opposite, Britannia Gardens.

This was a precursor to a series of swims in Norfolk to mark my year of becoming sixty. You can sponsor me if you would like to.

Report from Norfolk and Fens swims soon.
