Because this spot is at the other end of town, we typically swim here as a family during the weekend or whenever we have some extra time. It has a beautiful pier called Sneglen, or the snail. It’s round and built from reclaimed wood to look like the inside of a snail’s shell. No one knew it was there at first, but it’s quickly becoming popular. Still, the mornings are quiet. Camilla and I are up by 5:30 a.m. most days, so we have time to swim while the kids are asleep. We then come home and eat breakfast with the children before they go off to school and we go to work. The routine was difficult in the beginning, but swimming has become an important ritual. It can’t be a proper day without it.
