Swanton Morley 30 April: Norfolk swims for 60th

I was delighted to introduce the Crazy Ladies to my local swim spot, in a fun-packed start to a two-day Norfolk swim safari in a series to mark my year of becoming sixty.

We had great fun sliding down the weir below the three arch bridge, having a jacuzzi  in the mill pool waterfall, jumping off the rope swing, just generally splashing about and being sociable…

The Crazy Ladies are one of many groups on Facebook where swimmers can share info on swimming spots, arrange group swims or to meet others to swim at your own risk.
