An afternoon in aquatic ladyland

I returned to the lady’s pond yesterday for a bit of unseasonably sunny r and r. It’s been a few years since I’ve actually hung out at the meadow and I’d forgotten what a nice relaxed atmosphere it has. There’s a much greater mix of people than in the winter months – many of whom don’t actually swim – and I realised that it’s not often that I spend time in the company of women of such a range of ages. I swam for a good 15-20 minutes as the water was up to a tropical 15.5 degrees and the restraining line has been moved right back (although it’s still there along the side, which I don’t remember from last year). A somewhat unusual new feature is the coot nesting right on top of one of the lifebelts. Afterwards I returned to the meadow to witness the afternoon shuffle – all the sun worshippers following the sun round. It became a little chilly later on, but hang on chaps, it is only April.
