Wild water Wye swimming
I wish I'd looked up from tunnel vision weeding today as another local activity has appeared: Son plus 14 friends came down for their annual canoeing and camping weekend but there was just too much rushing water for even vaguely safe canoeing as the Wye is in flood, so instead they hired wetsuits and lifejackets from the Hollybush Inn www.hollybushcamping.co.uk a few miles outside Hay and swam to Hay. The river was so swift it took them all faster than they had ever swam in their lives. I was sorely jealous and wished I had looked up from weeding to do something fun! By all accounts better than canoeing, I'm off next weekend, I think a new hobby looms!
