Swimming with Seals By Victoria Whitworth Cover Image


Victoria Whitworth began swimming in the cold waters of Orkney as a means of temporary escape from a failing marriage, a stifling religious environment, and a series of health problems. Over four years, her encounters with the sea and all its weathers, the friendships she made, and the wild creatures she encountered, combined to transform her life. This book is a love letter, to the beach where she swims regularly and its microcosmic world, to the ever-changing cold waters where the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet, and to the seals, her constant companions.
