Yesterday, for the first time in quite a long time, I was back at the sea, in Gourock. First a swim in the outdoor pool, which is right next to the sea. Surprisingly, I had never done this. After tomorrow they close for the season so it was just in time. Fortunately the water is heated (about 28C), because otherwise it would have been a bit nippy. The picture shows a view from the poolside.

@wim_v12e what is the actual temperatur in the real sea?

@wim_v12e just looked... 13.5°C ... that is 'fresh' ;-)

@vilbi Indeed. The outdoor temperature was 16C with a strong wind and showers of rain 😃

@wim_v12e I was swimming in the baltic sea about a week ago, but then it was 'warm', 17°C air and sea... but I would not go at lower temperatures...

So the pool is heated sea water or is it just a fresh water pool by the sea?

@katharsisdrill It's heated sea water. Normally it should be 29C but they had recently refreshed the water and it takes some time to warm up.

@wim_v12e - OK, that is cool (or warm). I hate chlorinated fresh water.
