Wild Swimming In Cornwall
Wild swimming is my sanctuary, my solace, somewhere to escape the world and just be in nature. I’ve been doing it for a two years now, after a friend invited me to go wild swimming with her in a beautiful swim spot close to where I live in Cornwall.
Before long, there was a small group of us – women swimming together, stripping down to our swimwear in secluded beauty spots and taking to the open water. And I’ve not really looked back. I can honestly say that wild swimming changed my outlook and has been the greatest tonic for my mental health.
(Edit: During the various lockdowns and restrictions of 2020 and 2021, I have continued my wild swimming journal when it has been safe and within the guideliens to do so - Wild river swimming in my home town has become an alternative to the sea!).
