After rain there is sunshine ... so the saying goes ... and after ice? ... well, there is snow of course :) Up and down the country people are snowed in. Schools and airports are shut, trains delayed, chaos on the roads ... The Tooting Bec Lido: open! And what a beautiful sight it was!
Thanx to the hard working lifeguards, Aaron and Anthony were on duty today, we were able to get our daily fix, indulge in the pleasures of cold water swimming and (for good measure) socialise in the sauna! What more can you ask for?!
The air temperature has dropped a bit since yesterday which resulted in the ice sheet covering less of the pool.
Hurrah, we were able to swim "proper" widths in the deep end again!
Vince on his way to swimming three widths and before you wonder what he did regarding flip flops, I took them to the other side for him! I love even numbers and was quite happy to swim (only) two and dived in again after the sauna :)
Chris keeping track of who made it in this morning before the lifeguards put out the form we normally use :)
many more people came! ... and and and ...
... then Chris got in the deep end to swim four widths
