October 7. Day 281. Bombs away

The calendar might still have summer a couple of months away. The thermometer says otherwise. Once the mercury passes the 30 degrees mark it is officially pool weather and today was the ceremonial opening of the 2012/2013 swim season.
Some of us (that would be me) likes to sneak into the water gradually acclimatising each little bit before eventually immersing myself in the water. I am officially a sooky la, la.
The boys take a rather different approach. Here is Charles in action. Mr O might as well laugh because he was about to be swamped by his Dad and the take no prisoners approach to pool entry.
Might as well make the most of it. Isn't it always the way that the heat arrives the day before school goes back?
Roll on Christmas holidays.
