The fair weather swimmers have gone, on the cusp of the summer season the pool was the quietest I've seen in weeks. Yesterday's heavy rain and this morning's drizzle had bought the water temperature down by a half degree to 16.5ºC but it felt soft and was warmer than the air still. Swam twenty two lengths while a lifeguard scribbed the mid pool from HMS Lido. A scratchy blue rope was strung across the water to keep the boat in place and Brian raised the rope so we could swim under it, although I still got caught a couple of times.
From tomorrow the lido is open to the public, not sure there'll be a big rush given the forecast but it should mean we'll get the entire pool to swim in again.
