How Warm?

Swimming Lake, Bristol, Bristol, City of Bristol BS10, UK

How warm?

It’s been 5 or so weeks since I managed a swim and in that time water has warmed up to an amazing 13°C (last time it was 4.5°C). So the warm weather has made a huge difference. When I arrived I didn’t look at the board for the water temperature nor did I notice that the full length of the lake was open (from 10°C and above): so I put on my gloves and bootees and got a wonderful surprise in the water! Enjoyed my four length of the full length of the lake and no need for a sauna today to warm up. Summer temperatures are going to feel like a bath after this. Got my last stamp on the card, and my winter dippers badge. I did find stamping the card motivating.
