The weather has been glorious for the last two weeks, and the water temperatures have been soaring. In the East Dart at Bellever I wallowed, watching an eel, in a shallow pool where the temperature was an astonishing 17.5. During the last week we've been swimming most nights in the SSS (swift swim solution) pool - where the temperature has averaged between 15.5 and 16 degrees. And in a lake on the Moor one night it was 19.5. Plus, the chanterelles are out, with great pickings, especially for June. And by happy coincidence, they grow near our swimming places.
