Wave dodging

It was our intention to swim up the Erme estuary at Mothecombe, but a few waves got in the way. This was not actually a problem, in fact it was rather good fun, as this picture of me shows, though I admit I do not look particularly happy. I am trying not to be obliterated; you can see me demonstrating my famous 'belly flop the wave' technique for avoiding total wipeout.

What a great shot..I love your blog, it cheers me up if I am ever glum.. I am a little jealous as I live near Coventry, far from the ocean..

Thank you! the shot was taken by a friend with a waterproof camera - a really fun toy, especially if you're into swimming. It's just slightly nerve-wracking using it of course, because of the risk of dropping it into the depths....
