Well I didn't venture for a swim today, but I did walk Isla to our little swim spot on Lake Windermere (the largest natural lake in England and 66m deep) after working in the office all day. It is really lovely (and a little strange) to see it still light at 5pm after the past few months of darkness from 3pm.
The sun was just about to set as we left, but the water was fairly calm and there was just a little snow on the mountain tops. We actually remembered to bring the thermometer today, and as expected the water was 3C which means recent swims have indeed been fairly chilly ones. Here's to the next swim!!
