A cold clear morning, a thick layer of frost on the common. There's a stillness to the water, as if it's too cold to move about. The sun hasn't yet reached the lido when I arrive.
The leaves in the gutter and the roof of the cubicles have a fluffy frozen coat.
Footprints freeze on the concrete tiles, I'm glad I have my flip flops. I cut back to ten lengths today, it feels much easier somehow although my hands and lower arms are numb by the time I get out.
After the sauna the sun is fills the pool, steam rises as the frost melts back despite the chill. I try to capture the expanse of water, click on it to see it bigger.
