Straight from crochet club to another archaeological dig that I told you about back in June. This is the site of a Roman cemetery and all sorts of artifacts have been found.

Yesterday I drove to Norfolk where I went Wild Swimming on the River Bure and it was something I had always wanted to do but will not repeat!! We had a crowd of other canoeists watching these mad 50+ Adventure people swim.
With our canoe man to rescue us, we set off down river trying to avoid the weed that wanted to entangle us and the water was bitterly cold. My hired wet suit prevented me swimming on my front and seemed to want to drag me down so I did everything on my back. Even the swans swimming up river wouldn't pass us, as we shouted encouragement to each other, and seemed bemused by the whole thing!!
Since I was a child I have had a fear of finding a dead body in weed and this was at the back of my mind the whole time and after we had been going a while it was suggested that we get out at the next activity centre and have a hot drink and get warm at the fire. This sounded like a good idea and after a hot shower at a Girl Guide Centre we all felt much warmer. But we had swum over half a mile so we didn't feel too bad about it and when I swim next it will be in a pool where you can see the bottom and the water is clean and warm!!
