Back by public demand (Thanks Torsten).

So it's been a while, and I have occasionally been gently nudged about my inaction on here, so here's a few that I took earlier on this summer. I might even update the temperature pic tomorrow (love that terrapin though).

A misty one from last week

A nice bit of gentle backstroke, oblivious to the cold, or so it seems from the safety of the jetty! Knowing what it feels like in there at the moment, I always find it interesting how calm some of us appear from the outside.

Ice again

This was the scene yesterday. It's still icey today, but bizarrely it's gone from the swimming area, despite the water feeling colder than ever!

One from yesterday when there was the odd bit of blue sky amongst the clouds. The weather forecast says it's going to be - 4c on Thursday morning! Thinking about a swim is making me anxious and excited in equal measures. Even if my toes don't survive, hopefully it should make for some nice icey pics.

A New Leaf

I've mentioned a few times that I'm going to post more regularly, and not kept to it, so now two weeks into the new year I'm going to make it a resolution to put at least one picture up every time I visit the pond. Let's see how long I can keep it up! Here's one from Monday. There was a bit of snow on the ground which was lovely, but I was a bit disappointed not to see more, I think I was getting nostalgic about last winter.

6 degrees! I was sceptical, but it was definitely less bitey. That's it, as you were.
