Guest bloggers

My favourite guest blogger is my mum Eileen also known as “The Swift Swimmer.  She was an athlete in her youth, excelling at high jump, hurdles and hockey.  Having 5 children didn’t slow her down and she tried out waterskiing, snow skiing, diving, wind surfing, kayaking, dry stone dyking, squash, tennis, and of course swimming.  Now aged 86, mum still swims in the sea in summer and loves it.  Last winter she swam as late as November!

My second guest blogger is my good friend Catriona, a newcomer to duathlons (that is triathlons without the swimming!).  She is a frequent visitor to the West Coast but has yet to take the plunge!!  She has just completed the Scottish Coast to Coast Challenge – 100 miles by bike, canoe and foot and a 46 mile return trip cycle to George Orwell’s former home, “Barnhill” on Jura.

My third guest blogger is another great friend,  Anna from Devon, often featured in Devon Dispatches and a regular visitor to the West Coast.  Anna is a great sea and river swimmer and knows a lot about our favourite post swimming food – sausages!!

My fourth guest blogger is a keen Canadian swimmer, artist, teacher and writer Fraser MacIver also known as The Polar Bear.  

And my newest recruit is Martin from Danna, a new swimmer to the group and very keen.  He calls himself The Danna Dooker!

WildSwimDiaries

''So swimming is a rite of passage, a crossing of boundaries: the line of the shore, the bank of the river, the edge of the pond, the surface itself.'' R. Deakin

Yaara Lahav

This site is about my new Anglo-Israeli, yet-to-be-published novel, Night Swimming in the Jordan. It's also about both night and day swimming in the seas and rivers of Devon, England, where I have lived for 25 years.
