All geared up-or not
Here I was all geared up and ready to go .. but (sadly) nothing t0 show for - today ! ... with all the laughters prior to my getting in I didn't push the right button .. or did I ?! and then pushed the wrong button while taking shots... or whatever ... who knows ... I was fighting the cold as well as keeping up with all the fish in the pond ... and probably got confused with the two buttons on the mask ... anyway I have some strange video footage ... ( yes the liquid mask also takes video) but really nothing worth showing you ... BUT what I do have are pictures I took with my trusted friend, the IXUS - As I took the liquid mask off it only showed 5 files ... what 5, was my reaction!?! that can't be right! I took loads of shots .. anyway - no crying over spilt milk - I quickly grabbed my IXUS and went back in - by now I was really cold ... nevertheless -photo opportunities were still abundant so I just got on with sneaking up on some action until I was simply too dizzy to carry on ... sauna next- quickly!
All geared up ... ready for some (non) action :)
Alex swam a formidable 22 lengths this morning!
Keeping up with Alex was really tough - fins or no fins - by now having exhausted most of my energy before taking the IXUS back in the water, I simply couldn't keep up with him for long ... he seriously swims fast!
Gus on his mile
Time for some art :) - I was too tired to keep swimming up and down the pool chasing after Alex!
Fortunately Simon swam past:)
I had to make a bit of an effort and swim to the other side of the pool to get a shot of Jonathan though ...
That looked funny from where I was! all the clothes hanging up in each cubicle and Barbara and Inez chatting
and finally : the sauna! where it was all happening :)
