It’s that time of year where the rivers are low and the weather warm. Well it has been up here anyway. We stole an after work and school session with the boys, where I dragged Nick away from his desk for an hour and we took the boys down to the River Feshie for some swimming and jumping in.

As winter turns to spring, we Teagues are beginning to plan for Summer 2017. One of the highlights of last summer was definitely our church camping weekend at Tollymore Forest, home to Ashley’s favourite kayaking river – the glorious Shimna!
We had some beautiful weather last summer and I am beginning to think that this year we are going to have a 12 month winter, there’s enough snow still in the Back Corrie at our local ski slope to rival a good day in February! It’s July tomorrow and we have only just switched off the heating. So with a few more days to go till the schools break up I find myself dreaming of the amazing summer we had last year.
We’re frequent visitors to the mountain areas of North Wales, and also to Pembrokeshire, but there are many areas of Wales we want to spend more time exploring, one of which is the Brecon Beacons.

We are having stunning October Scottish weather for a change!
Around this time last year, Harry managed to persuade us all to take a dip in the freezing cold Shimna River. I hadn’t expected to enjoy it as much as I did. Inspired by that experience, when we decided to take another trip to London in July, I thought we’d all love a wee semi-wild swim in the Serpentine Lido in Hyde Park.
We have just come back from a camping trip to Barra and the Outer Hebrides but feeling the pressure after my last blog, Wild Swimming 2014, I felt that what ever the weather threw at us some wild swimming had to happen!
