I finally got to site just after lunch today. There was a biting cold wind and even Mick the site manager was commenting on how nippy it was. That said I was so excited about the water going in I couldn't wait to go and have a look. And it looks amazing!
After all these months of planning and digging, nothing could could have prepared me for how stunning the basin looks with most of the water in. I walked right around to the top end of the site on the jetties, wading through the odd bit of fluffy topsoil where the paths aren't in yet and two thoughts struck me. The first was, if it looks this good in the middle of winter how much more beautiful will it be in the spring?, and the second, just how cold is that water going to feel when I finally get chucked in at the end of the build?!!!
