Swimming (well, floating on inflatables)

I have previously overcome my fear of swimming in deep water – I used to find it terrifying because a little toy cow like me can easily fill with water, sink and drown. But I, at one point, mastered swimming and feared it no longer. Nevertheless, when I came on this holiday, got into my swimming trunks and went to dive in, I found that my old fears had returned and I didn’t want to touch the water.

I went into town and purchased a lilo, mini swimming pool, armbands and rubber ring. As I returned to the pool, I found that I feared the water less – these would let me float.

Unfortunately, even with the armbands on, I could not bring myself to swim.

Paddling Pool
But I went on the pool in the paddling pool. It felt more secure and floated well on the water. I feel proud of myself for getting so close to the water.

I’ll try again tomorrow to go swimming properly. It’s strange how things like this can change in a year. Last year, I used my inflatable raft but could also swim without it.
