A true long distance swimmer

At the weekend a great little package arrived for me – a swim cap celebrating the Windermere swim.

What’s even better than the hat itself though is the message that came with it. Windermere is unofficially recognised (certainly by the BLDSA and by many others) as the swim that marks a swimmer out and confirms you as no longer someone that swims long distances, but a true long distance swimmer:

And yes, despite still not being happy about it, I can almost celebrate the swim.
