New Informal Group - Cycle / Swim / Walk

The idea is that we meet and enjoy an early morning swim in the sea with like minded friends.   Just turn up.
(If the response is positive then maybe we can add Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 08:30 to 09:30 swim in the Arenal at the Parador end of the Arenal beach. ) Please email Joni Hills at travel@u3ajavea.org, if you are interested.
