Swim


Friday was sunny and warm. I think that was it- the Scottish summer over and done with already! On the rare occasions that the weather is good all I can ever think of is being near water. I grew up just outside Plymouth, in South Devon, in close proximity to myriad rivers and beaches; perfect for summery afternoons. I miss dibbling my toes, wading through ankle high waves, avoiding seaweed, getting the guts to put my shoulders under the cold, clear water. Hopefully, at some point this summer, the sun will come back and we'll find somewhere to mess about by the river. In the meantime I'll have to make do with drawings.

Hooray a fellow near Plymouthian :) Do you ever cringe when you have to tell people where you're from? I'm learning to love Plymouth again now that I live in Falmouth though. Lovely page m'dear!

I have the biggest craving to swim right now but it's freezing (well, the Australian version of freezing)! Maybe I'll just draw pictures too, or look at your lovely ones!

NO WAY! There was me thinking you were a edinburgh girl through and through. I grew up there too in a little village between plymouth and tavistock, but the norths for me! Xx
