Went up to the pool for a swim this morning. I was in the water by about half nine, which is earlier than I usually go at the weekend. The sun is shining, for the first time in ages, and it was beating through the very high windows at the south end of the building and the light was streaming down into the water. And every time I got to about 5 metres away from the far end of the lane, I could see the sunlight shining through the water in beautiful streams, making the bubbles sparkle and glitter. For those couple of metres it was as pretty as swimming in the Med.
