Plant Belles open water swimming team - 2019 update... October 30, 2019 16:06

When not making, selling, sending Plant Belles or gardening, we have been busy training for our Summer of open water swim adventures, in the UK, France and Croatia. We all love it, even the kids and our swimming dogs!

2019 Update: One year on and we have swam Lake Wimbleball (Alex & Cyd), Roadford Lake again (whole Plant Belles family this year - no dogs) and last weekend Alex & I swam around Burgh Island (off Bigbury, Devon) escorted by the rest of the team on paddleboard / canoes etc. Hard to take pictures when open water swimming, so you are going to have to take my word for it.

We went find some French rivers (Ardeche pictured here)  and lakes in August, to explore:
