The last of the guests went home today so finally we have the house back and normal life can resume. We have gained lots of left over food and a lot of bedding to wash. I got the timing of this morning's swim a bit wrong and was leaving as J & K were getting in. Here they are saying - see you in the Yew Tree Barn for breakfast, go and grab a table.
For the record (now I have son R's cast off fancy waterproof watch), I swam for 400m and was in the water for 23mins. Not far but I was on my own most of the time admiring the fantastic pink sunrise from the middle of the lake, thinking- I really really must get a waterproof camera
