6th May, St Mary’s Isles of Scilly

We urgently made our way from one side of the island to the other. Then we ran elated and courageously into the water. It was cold and sea-weedy but felt blissful and nourishing. I am happy to be alive in this beautiful place. Dived under for full immersion. I didn’t feel scared as I was in the company of brave women friends. This immersion felt like an act of celebration and a way of connecting body to place. Thank you water.
