Serpentine swimming

Whilst in London supporting a friend in the Marathon we got the chance for an unauthorised swim in the Serpentine Lido. It wasn't officially open but everyone was getting into their bathers and going in anyway as it was such a glorious day and it seemed rude not to. As we breastroked up and down in a rather stately way (not wishing to put our faces in the water for fear of encountering old plastic bags or worse) we passed coots, ducks and swans. Rather lovely and a true wild oasis in the middle of the urban jungle.
