First Day of Summer 10 November 2010

First Day of Summer 10 November 2010

This morning the sun was rising and there was no wind. So I dressed in my bathing costume and kaftan. Dashing down the steps, I did not see anyone else heading for the St James beach pool. There were only two people leaving the beach. They assured me the water was warm.

It was wonderful to try out my new orange fins from Australia, which are much lighter than the old ones. I like the sensation of moving fast in the water so I use fins. I so enjoyed having the pool to myself.

It was cooler than I expected and so I did not stay in long.
I walked quickly up the 86 steps to the house, but I still needed a hot shower to warm up.
