So I decided to leave my bag with a western mum and young son and have a morning swim, which was lovely and I wasn't harassed, a few people did look over but think they decided it wasn't worth it as I was fairly far out and actually swimming.

Gonna do just a little bit of revision, then gonna get some sleep for an early morning tomorrow. Will post about GoPro condition/whatnot tomorrow. See you when I see you, Kieran ...
