Today I can give you the official water temperature, taken by David, Mr. Thermometer himself, it's 44 Fahrenheit - which is 6.6 Celsius. That's still nippy I can assure you! I managed 4 lengths and felt great .. wouldn't have wanted to do more though :) maybe tomorrow?!
Whereas others swam many more!
Vince swam 6 lengths. Mr. Bubbles, Alex swam 12 lengths ... he confessed to pushing for another 2 lengths purely because (later comer) Alfonso joined in when Alex was almost ready to get out :) Alfonso swam 8.
Quite impressive ... well, that's if one doesn't take Carl Richard's heroic efforts of yesterday when he swam 22 lengths into account!
I was still chatting to Alex and about to leave when Will arrived - he is a great swimmer too. I hadn't seen him for a while so took advantage to catch a few shots of him - he is tall and has got a very elegant stroke.
undecided on how many lengths he was going to swim Will takes the plunge ...
and set off ...
... at quite a pace
up the first length in no time - tumble turn
time for me to get some under water shots of Will
I like that shot A LOT! Hey, Mr. Bubbles you've got competition ...
well re. bubbles anyway :)
and back up the pool again - I had a hard time keeping up with him :)
Will collecting momentum for ...
his long reach -
I'm not sure how many lengths Will ended up swimming - My hand were getting quite cold from dunking them in the water - the wind wasn't helping besides I was home bound to have breakfast.
I like that shot too - so I had to put it in again ... in case you missed it:) It's also Will
