Bliss in the river
We are blessed with a mini heatwave at the moment and it is just so refreshing to go for a post-work dip in the river. As we walked along the bank amongst the fading bluebells and garlic the sun was bouncing off the surface and crowds of insects swarmed above the water. Miggy spotted a sea trout sitting quietly above the weir. We swam upstream, almost blinded by the sun. The current was strong but I was determined to get to a little island I've called Hairy Rock on account of the weed which grows on it, which, underwater, looks uncannily like human hair flowing in the wind.
