This week-end the Guardian had a supplement called the great outdoors:wild swimming and The Jesus Green pool was at number 56.
This is what it had to say about the pool :
“opened in 1923, Jesus green remains one of the longest outdoor pools in the UK, coming in at a whopping 90m.Right by the River Cam, this is a tranquil spot for alfresco swimming at its finest.Surrounded by old time trees that act as a leafy windbreak and sunshade, it has grassy plains on one side for sun worshipers to lounge away the hours”
Must say on Friday the water was at its coldest since its opening in may but it did soon warm up over the week-end with all that lovely sunshine.
We did record breaking distances too, 18 lengths for Geoff and 20 lengths for me.
When its cold Geoff’s finger tips go white and look really odd….but then someone who swims outside in the cold wind and rain maybe is odd 🙂
