Winter morning magic

Heyheyhey! I'm going to pretend that I don't know anything about retina screens for the moment, because time's been tight, and the best workaround seems to be starting a new blog elsewhere, and that's something I need to spend a good chunk of time doing, and there's never enough of it at this end of the year. So, in the mean time, here's a phone pic from a morning stroll to the Ladies Pond on Hampstead Heath last week, with my friend Z who was in town. I've started winter swimming this year; I saw this film, and decided with a friend that it was something we should try, and it's been an amazing experience. When we started in September it was +21c degrees in the water, and I've swum a couple of times a week since then, with +4 degrees being the coldest that I've experienced so far - and it's been totally fine! Which, if you knew me, you'd find improbable as I'm always the coldest person in the room, but for some reason cold water isn't a problem. There's a strict no phones policy at the Ladies Pond, which I think is great, so I haven't been able to take pictures. Anyways, I got to rush off now, but hopefully I'll be back before the end of the year!
