Just jump in Finy !! Don't be dainty about it. Once your heads in the water it's okay. Swimming is exercise so SHOULD warm you up in no time. No one complains of the cold after our water aerobics. We are all nicely warmed up. You should become a member at the pool, Finy. Then you won't have to worry about cost of lockers. We don't use a locker. Just put our bags poolside. Most people do this. We never take valuables there.
I go swimming every second day, plus go to water aerobics all year round. I go to the local swimming pool all year, no matter what the weather. The water is so refreshing and feels lovely, especially on hot days. We don't do water aerobics if it gets over a certain temperature, due to the heat. The poor instructor might pass out !!! She had ice packs on trying to keep cool the other day. No reason why you cant get in the water and go swimming instead, even if the class is cancelled. No better place to be on a hot day.
I'm off to Adelaide early December and thd hotel has an indoor pool but I can't remember if it's a walk-in at one end or nit. If it is, then I will have a swim, otherwise it's under the shower for me.🏊
Not this season nor the last, nor the season before that! In fact not since I was in Bora Bora, but it wasn't a swim as such, it was just getting my self wet, up to my waist, like on the Isle of Pines & 2 Hawaiian Islands, so that was 2 years ago. I can swim, but I just don't want too!
I've just found this question again, & I was standing in the sea at 2 or 3 islands on my last 2 week cruise, Feb/March '18. Not actually swimming, but I did get wet. I guess I won't bother going in the (sea) water again until my next cruise..
Whenever that will be!
