Warm and Wet

…and the boys are definitely HOT and wet!

Those are gymnast boys from Chelyabinsk, enjoying getting ‘toughened up’!

Here in Portugal we’ve just had a period of light rain – the first for many weeks – but the temperatures are holding up, reaching the low eighties Fahrenheit (~26C) and the sun is back. What’s not to like?

We have the beach nearby…

Or a nearby river…

And not forgetting the pool of course…

Followed by a relaxing sauna…

In Finland or Russia you would follow that by a plunge either into the snow, or back into icy water, but we’re a bit limited on that here on the Algarve…

…so a cool shower is more usual…

Straight from the pool, this one…

A great way to get hot and wet is to sweat your way through a good workout!

And finally, as I mentioned at the start, rain is not entirely unknown here…

…but it would be an unusual way of cooling down here (I think that those lads are in India).

And, when you’re finally dried off and have a refreshing glass of something to hand, settle down with a good book which celebrates the fit young man and his adventures!

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
