This is a cracking venue. They actually go round and pull up the weeds! They were really nice and helpful and we all had to do a swimming test before they let us go round. HAHAHAHAHAHA! But what a good idea if someone looks like their eyes are bigger than their swim Cojones.

I didn't use the changing area but the run lap is 1.5K ish. Did 3 laps after a 1500 swim.

Excellent to see Siggy again and DTB dropped in with man. Soupy, we missed you!!! But it would deffo have brought one of those Soupy comments, "How fab were that!"

Am away this weekend but will try and make next week.

Looks like there might be a half decent nosebag joint just adjacent too.

Yeah, thumbs up.

And one bloke there who was swimming said, "These Pirates have a lot of influence you know"

Are you sure that wasn't under the influence?

 Sounds like a lovely lake but not so easy to get to for me.

 I'm going to Mytchett on Sunday, 20 mins from falling out of bed to being ready to swim is always a winner.  Itll be the main bit of the lake rather than the small 400 loop from Wednesdays but I will report back on the weed situation .

Well, folks I'm orf to the Lakes for a week so taking wetsuit with me. If anyone knows a good spot for a newbie let me know. yeah, yeah, I know there's lots of lakes (obvs innit) but i kind of like a bit of supervision/absence of shopping trolleys until I'm more confident.

WOW!!!!! Shepperton is fab!

99% weed free venue, lovely guys (and gal) running it and a damn good spot to go for a post-swim run.

5.30pm. I should be there.

I'll be there about that time if I remember to take a map this time.  I think I know where it is now though, near Thames Court pub. It had better be good cos its a bit of a drive for me to get to.

Soup, I don't think you'll regret it! I won't make it I'm afraid. I have to wait in for a bloke who's coming to, hopefully, buy my old car!

Are we going for something to eat afterwards?  Thames Court used to do decent grub and serve a good pint.

I'll be there, will have to leave work early judging by the traffic getting to Thorpe today!
