How to Distract Yourself in Dover whilst Waiting For A Channel Swim…………..

Thank God for my Uncle Chris!

I’m waiting for a decent weather slot before I swim the English Channel, and the British weather is being it’s usual fickle self.

Chris’s constant challenge is to think of things to do to occupy my butterfly mind -- and today was Dover Castle!

It’s a bit expensive at £16.50 per person, but if you do everything, you feel like you’ve got your money’s worth.

Here’s me and Chris at the Admiralty Point -- the platform that overhangs the Dover Cliffs -- a great vantage point from which
you can see the Dover Harbour in which I have been swimming for the last 17 weeks!

You can tell why were weren’t allowed to swim today -- it was soooo windy -- you can tell from the audio on the video below!!

And here’s the earlier attempt at the video -- the uncut version -- abandoned due to me being too scared with Uncle Chris threatening to jump off. Honestly -- I thought HE was the responsible adult!!! Apologies for the poor language!

About Pete Windridge-France

I'm a Leeds-based 37 yr old, and live with Sarah my other half, and my kids Archie, Jem and Scarlett. Being a fan of swimming and generally doing silly things, I decided to try swim the channel to raise money for Archie's Special Needs School - Penny Field in Leeds. This website shows my progress!
