Itinerary Suffolk swim trip Part 1 Sept 7-8

This is the itinerary for my latest monthly swim trek in East Anglia (in six months of swims to mark the year I become 60)- Part 1, 7-8 September. Please sponsor me if you would like to. I met local swimmers or groups to swim together at our own risk (in line with OSS). I will write an account of the swims soon.

You can read about my other treks in East Anglia in the Swims section

My swims are not very long or fast, but I like exploring new places and revisiting some old favourites. I know many of these but would like to find new spots. I hope to have swims/dips in rivers, lakes, a lido, tidal rivers and the sea.
