The was a nip in the air and the odd spot of rain, the pool was covered in leaves blown off the trees in yesterday's gales. It isn't really autumn though and despite the poor weather of the last few days the water didn't feel too bad, still around 13°C I believe.
I swam twenty two lengths on my own, it might have been twenty four because I lost count at one point. The hoover was out clearing the water and I had good fun racing it on a couple of lengths.
The leaves are still young and soft, not like the scratchy ones you get in autumn. They still stick to your goggles and get caught in between your fingers as you swim.
I'm sure it will be clear again tomorrow, the weather looks like it should get better as the week goes on too.
