Victoria Whitworth

Swimming with Seals


'Attentive, astute and beautiful. It expanded my mind and heart' AMY LIPTROT.

An inspiring book about intense physical and personal experience.

Victoria Whitworth began swimming in the cold waters of Orkney as a means of temporary escape from a failing marriage, a stifling religious environment and a series of health problems. Over four years, her encounters with the sea and all its weathers, the friendships she made, the wild creatures she encountered, combined to transform her life. This book is a love letter, to the beach where she swims regularly and its microcosmic world, to the ever-changing cold waters where the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet, and to the seals, her constant companions.

    memories are raw, messy things, triggered by stray associations of smell and touch; often disconnected; always fallible.
