We left in the dark and arrived as the sun was coming up. The wind was ferocious and bitterly cold but it was lovely to have very few people around in the park and just the wildlife and views to entertain us!
And, during the course of wandering around the park, we espied a lady clad in nothing but a swim suit and swimming cap coming out of the Serpentine in the freezing cold having been in for a swim!! We were advised by a notice, that swimming was only permitted if you were a member of the swimming club and then you were restricted in swimming between 6.30 and 9.00 a.m. Well...I have a self-imposed restriction on swimming in these temperatures from 12 midnight to 12 midnight!!!!
