I love diving and think I might be good at it (no-one has ever told me otherwise), howver I have never actually seen myself dive so maybe I am rubbish at it?? I realise now what a difficult skill it is to master as I watch me kids learn to dive,
Oh! delbr, could you not learn from a local swimming centre?
It's a marvellous ability to have, & being in water is just so relaxing!
Once you learn to swim, paddling in the surf is relaxing, too! Hopping into a cold creek on a hot Summer's day.........endless possibilities' open for you! Cheers!
At 61 on disab pension, private lessons are outrageously expensive, + I'm the wrong shape for bathers now.
There are hundreds of thousands of older people who were never taught to swim, yet no where for them to learn unless private lessons are paid..
