An early start to be sorted into hats. Not the thrilling experience of newcomers to Hogwarts, but the more athletic swim to a bouy and back to see who would be swimming with who. I was sorted into the pink hats (fast) with Clare; and Kate was sorted into the green hats (slowest). Back to the hotel for breakfast before a drive to Lake Bled
where we did the first of three swims. Firstly to the church – where we splashed and played for a while
then back for some lunch
before heading off down the length of the lake (around 2.2km) to rest at a swish lido and get some swim tips.
