I don’t know why, but I think it’s awesome you are swimming your waterways. Rivers around me are really shallow and if not shallow are polluted.
@Clifford We're quite lucky in Northumberland and this is a particularly good spot - 800m of calm deep water. About a 10 mile drive unfortunately, but at our house the river is still tidal, occasionally a bit murky, plus you risk being harassed by curious seals! 🤣
