New faces, new toys
Never mind the rain, the water temperature was up! That must be a good sign! In fact, today, the temperature has reached this years all time high: 8 Celsius - now that's what I call progress!
One could really feel the difference too while swimming - long may it continue up and up the thermometer - at least as far as 10 Celsius that would be a great incentive for doing more lengths and for taking my camera into the water again when I'm actually in, as opposed to holding it in from pool side to take underwater shots...
Meet Nicola, and her daughters Mabel and Hettie
Nicola getting Hettie ready for her cold water experience - their normal swimming lesson got cancelled so Nicola thought of introducing her daughters to the Lido in winter .. well almost spring ;)
Hettie still showing a bit hesitant ... but...
... not for long - look at that , she's in!
In addition to last week's flippers, Mandy is swimming with her "new toy" on her hands
take a close look and you'll see it on her hand - it helps get more pull under water
Sue powering up and down - unassisted:)
Gus swam even more lengths than Sue .. not sure how many - but impressive all the same!
