       Dear friends
       I love swimming, but I am not a hardy swimmer.  I’m not one of those who swims
       outdoors all year round.  I do like to take an opportunity though when I can.  It
       was obvious from about the third week in September that the weather was going
       to change, so I took advantage of one of those still glorious sunny and hot days to
       have a last swim in the sea.

       Off we went, Graham, Zinnie and I.  Zinnie was happy to paddle and fetch the
       ball, but still quite cautious of going in anywhere near her tummy and couldn’t
       understand why I wanted to go in deeper.  I left her on the beach attached to
       her lead with Graham and went off to have my swim in peace or so I thought.  I’d
       had  a  swim  and  then  was  floating  having  a  lovely  chat  with  a  local  when  I
       suddenly turned round and found a dog next to me.  So, the great news is that
       Zinnie can swim – she’s not sure how – she did look quite astonished, but she has a
       very strong doggy paddle and she survived!  It’s not something she’s repeated
       yet.  A docile paddle in the river is still the norm, but at least I know instinct can
       kick in if needed.
       Instinct is quite important to our survival  – keeping ourselves and those we love

       from harm, making sure we have food to eat and water to drink, warmth, shelter
