The kids and I headed out to the pool at 8:30 this morning. It was already 80 and the sun was beaming down. The pool is a shady, .7km walk from our house so it was very pleasant. When we got to the pool the kiddie area was empty and the lanes were full of serious swimmers so we decided to play in the kiddie pool. Notice the giant shade tarps over the pool!
The kiddie area quickly filled up and the kids and I moved over to the big pool to do some swimming. The water was cool and the sun was scorching but because the air is dry (25% humidity dropping to 19% by mid-afternoon) the breeze really makes the air feel chilly when you get out of the water.
The kids had fun and 2.5 hours later we headed home tired and cold. The cold didn't last long... by the time we got home (about 15 minutes) the kids' hair and swim suits were dry. The bath towels I had put out this morning on the laundry line were bone dry. The forecast high for the afternoon keeps climbing with the temperature. Currently it is pegged at 101... but it is 91 already.
