Last night saw Rob Windsor and I back in Colemere for the first time this year. Having been restricted to swimming in Ellesmere all of this season, (awaiting aceptance of the Colemere risk assessment), it was good to be back in my favourite local lake.
The water seemed much colder than Dover, and this feeling did not change during our 2 lap curcuit of the lake, I suspect it was down around 12C. We both agreed to call it a day after an hour and retire to Rob's house for supper. Since I'm not down in Dover this weekend, the thought of a long swim in this temp water on Saturday, does not inspire, but it must be done.
