Kinfolk Saturdays: Swimming in Wild Waters. ...By immersing into wild waters, you surrender to your senses. To feel that chill in your bones or moss between your bare toes, to hear a soft ripple or loud splash, to lose vision in that green-blue expanse. In a sense swimming strips us down, tunes out the busyness of our everyday lives and provides a weightless escape. Take to the outdoors and jump in.
