    Have Always Loved Swimming ...

    Swimming makes me feel good and I try to swim as often as I can.  It makes me feel really energised and clear headed, a great way to end a difficult day at work.

    Floating

    I feel like I was born to be in the water. I feel so calm and at home floating there, the ripples and currents carrying me along.
