The Emmanuel Ice Duck Is Broken

First day of Emmanuel College Pool being open. Built in 1855, it has claims to being the oldest outdoor pool in the UK. Pictures here.

Broke it at 4.30pm. There was no ice, but there should have been. Swimming in glorious cold burning turquoise water under an almost lavender sky on the last day of April. 'IT'S AAAAAPPPRRRIIIIIL!' I shouted up at the sky. Jordan intent on Underwater, Ottering and diving. I got cramp in my foot for the first time ever. It was that kind of an exciting swim. I went off to buy a bikini top. It is in this spirit of serious frivolity that we proceed.
