Good afternoon. The sun is shining, exceptionally, and I am feeling marginally more optimistic about this whole Situation and life in general. That being said even when sunny Coventry has got nothing on the tropical islands below (only landscape-wise, of course – the company is excellent), so allow me to indulge in my nostalgia for large bodies of water and warmer suns. In the summer of 2020 I did some proper swimming for what I think was the first time in three years (!), and I did not realise how much I had missed it until I was in my native Adriatic broth, paddling for dear life. Anyone else miss swimming? Maybe when such things are allowed again I’ll sign up with the big fuckoff gym they just built round the corner, which is bound to include a big fuckoff swimming pool. Anyway, I digress – please enjoy the photos below. No thoughts, just vibes, etc.
