A nice relaxing swim :-)
Saturday, late afternoon, I wasn't sure how long I really wanted to keep swimming for. So when after 30 min of swimming, a few teenagers jumped in the pool, I decided to call it a night. I'd swam 40 lengths (800m), so that was okay.

No Merlin last night
Last night when I left my mams' to head home, Merlin decided he didn't want to move from the settee. He was obviously very comfortable where he was, so I went out to the car without him.
