A Perfect Day for the Swift Swimmer

The Swift Swimmer has now mostly recovered from her recent illness and celebrated (naturally) by swimming!  Towards the end of our rainy Scottish summer we have had several perfect days of sunshine and calm weather – perfect conditions for an 86-year-old to take to the seas – which she did THREE DAYS IN A ROW!  We are all very proud of her.
