Last (Official) Weekend Winter Swimming

It's officially the start of spring on Tuesday, so today was my last winter swim for 2009. The water temperature is 16 degrees(it actually rose to 17 last weekend). It was a warm, but blustery afternoon with strong westerlies. I went to Wylie's right on high tide, thinking the westerlies would flatten the swell, but it was a wee bit rough at times in the pool.

Another Winter's Day At Wylie's

The water is getting cooler. It's finally down to 16 degrees C. This time last year it had been 15 for a while, and even got down to 14 for a couple of days in mid-august.

Today I swam on high tide, with the waves crashing into the pool, and huffed and puffed my way through twelve lengths of breastroke.
