Waning Crescent Moon
It may be grey and gloomy up above, down below its green and magical. A mild November so far and temperatures of 11 degrees so although fresh I am not shuddering yet !!
We head to go anti clockwise around the island so its green all the way, time to get lost in all.
We hit directly the corner of the island and hug the edge over shallow rocks covered in sculptural seaweed.
Diffused in the bubbles from Anne-Marie swimming in front of me.
The corner of the island hovers above the stripe of surface water contains the reflection from the sea weed below.
Swimming around the island now.
I focus on my stroke on the way back, its that time of year and we are going to be training in the pool. I will need to concentrate no stopping for photos.
