Swimming With Seals
Swimming With Seals by Victoria Whitworth. This book's title and (don't judge me) it's beautiful cover drew me in. This remarkable book which follows Victoria's experiences after she began swimming in the cold waters of Orkney as a means of escape. She describes her encounters with the sea and all its weathers, the friendships she made, the wild creatures she encountered all of which combined to transform her life. The book is a love letter, to the beach where she swims regularly, to the ever-changing cold waters where the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet, and to the seals, her constant companions. The perfect book for any wild swimmers out there.
