With a sojourn for a boil and a bleach at the Tewkesbury swimming pool, housed in a building called Cascades. I had to swim slow, very slowly to avoid my uncapped head exploding in the 30C water temperature. So warm it was soupy. I managed 30 minutes before I felt that I was also experiencing a chemical peel. And then out into the rain. A constant rain. Healthily leavened with great down pourings. A great relief. I sheltered in book, coffee and charity shops various whilst meandering through alleys (Tewkesbury is famous for them) and the Abbey.
