Just back from an early evening at the riverbank club. Left work a 5, to get to Newnham by 5.30 and was met by Michael with a bottle of lovely Moldovan Rose from Waitrose (Firebird Legend Merlot Rosé 2006 Vulcaneshti, Moldova). Had a swim up to Dead Man’s corner and back, and the water was a lovely 17°C. Lots of may flies were hovering over the riven in big clouds and with a bit of breeze there were fairly charging towards me as I swam back from Dead Man’s Corner. The wine had me scunnered (Scots usage!).
