……………………………………….my water babies.
With summer officially over, my two little granddaughters, are about to hang up their flippers. Well at least one of them, Ruby, is!
This summer, just past, she started learning to swim, and took to it like the proverbial duck.
Which is not surprising really. Her daddy is a great one for swimming. He actually swims in the ocean. That’s the Pacific Ocean! You know the one I mean, the one with lots of sharks and jellyfish that sting you to death, and if they don’t get you well there’s always plenty more that will have a go at you.
Ruby can now swim several metres, which is several metres more than her dear ol’ grandpa and what’s more, she has now started to dive! Yes indeed actually diving head first into the pool.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of that, but here are just a few with one of Poppy May, watching on with great interest.
The pool where Ruby attends will be closing down soon for a short period and she will be there ready to dive in head first as soon as they re-open.
