The clocks go forward to British Summer Time in just a few day. The sun is bright and high at 8am when I reach the lido.
But there is ice on the water still after another freezing cold clear night.
There's a channel clear on the parkside almost to the deep end, Anthony clears the last bit as I swim my two lengths. A week out of the water but 1ºC doesn't feel too bad.
I notice this chipped door on the way out. It looks as if it's been green, yellow and red over the years.
