As it’s bank holiday Monday, and half term week, with many of us still shielding and restrictions in place, I thought it might be fun for us to take a virtual day trip!
My favourite places to visit for a day out often involve water; walking along a river, dipping my toes in the freezing North Sea, or (very occasionally wild swimming….brrrrrrrrr).
To kick start the week I thought I would include these two beautiful poems written by my sister. The first about a coastal walk, the second about wild swimming! I can feel the chill tingle of cold water just reading the second poem! I hope you enjoy!
I hope you have a restful bank holiday Monday. Look out for Wednesday’s Connect to Nature Creative Writing Class. This week’s theme is on ponds, lakes and rivers. See you soon. (And – for what it’s worth….my sister has always been the one swimming, I’m the one usually hopping about, up to my knees in cold water, shrieking!!) If you can get outdoors and are lucky enough to have water nearby remember to only swim where it is safe to do so!
