This morning I was up at 7am to go and meet a small group of locals who swim in the sea at Stein each morning. I love wild swimming and it is something I have been wanting to get involved with here on Skye. So at 7.30am I adorned my swimming cossie and belly flopped off the jetty at Stein into the sea. What a way to wake up! I felt so alive out there, goggles on, looking at life beneath the waves; starfish, jelly fish, sea urchins. After a wonderful swim I headed home for a warm up in a hot bath and lay there thinking how good life is up here. I am starting to feel a part of the local community. Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming. Nature is all around me. I feel the most tremendous sense of wellbeing unlike I have ever experienced before.
