To finish up the holiday pics, you've got to see the sea. Oh my, the sea. I swam every day in it. Off pebbly beaches, off sandy beaches and off the rocks. It was a clear turquoise in parts turning to a petrol blue as the waters got deeper. A gentle current but very salty. In Montenegro my legs were nibbled by fish.
I like to swim part of the time and bask part of the time, laying flat out on my back and just floating with the sun on me. I store those memories up like other people do preserves, bringing them out to keep me going through the long dark days of winter.
