Learnt swimming at 19, with brother at the CSC from a Mr Lim Boon Lee. The tallest of the cohort. Overcame my awkardness(being the oldest) by reassuring myself that I knew no one and no one knew me at the pool. That was how I had the courage to learn.
Last evening, I saw two ladies in the 60s having lessons in the pool. I'm impressed.

Swimming,when the sun is down, is therapeutic both for the mind and body. Never too late to have a splash with the children.

This cute cat spends most of her time in the park near our home. It's everyone's pet.
Yes, like you, I stay close to the side when swimming.
