After laying about all day today trying to conserve energy, the phone call to Reg yielded different results. The swim is going to happen tomorrow. We are to meet Reg at 7am at Folkestone Harbor and then the swim will start around 8am from Samphire Hoe. He said that tomorrow is the best day that there is going to be and this was my shot.
While I was laying about, I was doing some laundry. Martin and Sonia figured that because I finally washed my nasty beach towel that the winds decided to calm down. I had stated something to the fact that I wasn’t going to wash the towel until the swim as it was just going to get nasty again from my harbor training. Martin said that I should have washed the towel last week! Perhaps he is right, the way it was I had to chase the towel around the guest house just to get it into the machine. (It was so dirty it had grown legs).
Jane and my parents spent the day at Dover castle seeing the sites. I’ve attached some photos for entertainment.
See I told you all it was WINDY!!!
