… it’s packed full of awesome locations to swim, interesting stories from across the open swimming community and great tips to help you on your next open water adventure. I had the privilege of adding a few words of my own about some of my favourite places to swim Heron Lake and Andark Lake.
Swim Heron Lake
Physical and mental wellness is important to recognise in ourselves but also in others.
Today I chose to brave a cold water swim as part of my self-care.
Well done to all of you and welcome to the diving world 🤿.

Getting ready for a busy month ahead! 🤿😊
