Day 9 Open water swimming season opened together

Today was the official opening of open water swimming season. Every spring Helsinki-Uusimaa region has a week-long campaign to promote open water swimming and to inspire people to enjoy lovely waters we have in the area. It was the warmest and sunniest campaign start this far. Water temperature in Lake Lohja was astounding 20 °C! All week of sunshine has done its job. First-time-this-spring swimmers took their wet suits off, when they realised water temperature. I had a short swim along the beautiful public beach Aurlahti in Lohja City center (!) with few #ows friends. There were children playing and swimming. Only thing that reminded of spring, was tiny leaves in trees. Otherwise appeared to be SUMMER!

Location: Lake Lohja, Aurlahti public beach, Lohja.
