March comes in like a lion, or a strange yellow crab. This is the pool hoover doing a wonderful job clearing up all the leaves. The cold north wind was still blowing this morning, I think it was colder out of the water than in. I did eight lengths, stopping to picture the hoover and then on length six my hat and goggles came off again. It was quite difficult to put them on again in the water and I got quite cold trying to do so, perhaps I need a hat with a strap? I think the temperature is about 6ºC.
