Janet’s comments about Adventures came true yesterday evening.  After a successful day’s swimming we returned to the Arethusa to dry off the towels and costumes before going out for a healthy salad et al at the local Harvester.  The swimmers were well behaved and ate tonnes.  Leaving the restaurant at 8:30, we planned to spend...
