River swimming

Good for mind, body, and soul. It's the only place I don't actually feel any pain. Brilliant swimming side by side with the dog. Need to swim every day really.

Sounds great. Lovely dog. I've been sea swimming lately and I love it. As you say no pain and so invigorating . Makes you hungry though!

Hello Nettac,

I just wanted to say be very careful of the under currents in any rivers, don't assume all is calm as it looks on the surface.

I've had cause to help rescue two people to date. The undercurrents are extremely strong and quickly drag you down.

Sorry to be a wet blanket but there's not always a sign saying danger.

Thsnk you.

It's a spot much used by locals. That's not to say something can't happen! But to date, all fine.

Positivity, not worth crying cos no one listen lol, while my brain is being stolen away all because my Dementia is taking over lol, these little incidents while reading health unlocked lol and it cheers people a lot, unless they are in a lot of pain.

Take care too.
