It was a beautiful sunny start at home but as I crossed the river the fog got thicker and thicker. I had to check with Anthony if we were okay to swim lengths. The mist was heavy and damp in the air, a light coating of dew had covered my jacket when cycling.
Underwater was a different world, clear and sharp. Elizabeth and Ian were swimming lengths behind me so I stopped to get this picture of them both. I went on to swim twelve lengths in total, my hands were getting quite cold by the end, the damp air was cool.
The white blob is Ian's hat, I likes the reflection of the wintery trees on the water. The soft misty light was quite different and a real contrast to the clear vision under the surface.
By the time I had finished in the sauna the sun was beginning to show through the fog, a pale yellow disk. Elizabeth was going to dive in so I lay on the pool side to give the image some hight.
It looks as if she dived from the tops of the trees! It was second time lucky though, although I caught her on the first attempt he dive wasn't quite as elegant. See Elizabeth's blog here.
Before I left I saw Carl in the pool no doubt swimming miles, I rushed to the shallow end to get this picture of him just before he turned, I wonder if he saw me? See today's musings here.
