Newcastle Abseil

A great, sunny day for abseiling from the Vermont Hotel, Newcastle.  Five people did the 200 foot abseil for Save the Children and I got a chance to take a panorama from the top of the hotel.  Would be nice to go back at night though, for another view of the river!  Click on the images for a larger view.

The Great North Swim

Well done to Save the Children fundraisers Bara and Vicky who swam in the Great North Swim on Lake Windermere this weekend.  It was a cold grey day, and they looked a bit nervous before the start, but they both completed the mile long swim in under 40 minutes.
