I went swimming today. I blithely dived in and nearly died of shock. The water has dropped over 5 degrees Celsius in just over 3 days!
It is now a definitely bracing 26.5! ( It was 32.) I had to put in a couple of laps of fast freestyle just to combat the cold! I’m so used to it being like a luke-warm bath.
It was positively UNCIVILISED!
