Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against a nice warm swim at 20 degrees in the summer, nothing at all. But on Thursday Michelle got into the marine lake before 7 in the morning, I got out at nearly midday. In the middle of the morning, we were in the lake at the same time for about 20 minutes, doing laps. All I see of some of my swimming friends at the moment is a passing splash and a flash of goggles, and yet in the winter we huddle in the pub over hot chocolate and spend longer talking than we do swimming.
I am enjoying the warmth, I am not complaining, but we are ships that pass at mid-morning. The winter has its good points too.
