We have early and incredibly intense bloom going on in Southern Finland due to unusually warm days of May. Lake Sääksjärvi was covered by pine tree pollen, and it was a bit peculiar to swim in yellow color water. Still the water of Sääksjärvi was clear, I could easily see the bottom of the lake. And pollen didn’t hinder in any way. Actually it was fun to swim 1,5 K in 18 °C yellow water with my training pal Tuomas.
