✓✓ Read Receipts: Into the water

The past few days I've spent a fair bit of time in the water. On Friday I swam twenty lengths in the perfectly ascetic municipal moderne Brockwell Lido, where the concrete floor can scorch your feet after only a few hours of sunlight. Then on Saturday I visited Southend-on-Sea for the launch of the Radical Essex book, where I had a very muddy splash at the point the Thames estuary meets the sea. Appropriately, I've also been reading and watching things about water.
