We weren't feeling quite up to a complete swim around Burgh Island, so decided to go and have a swim in the Mermaid Pool instead. The storms have taken their toll - there was a huge hole in the wall which keeps the water in. The pool was a shadow of its former self - more of a puddle in fact...with the diving platform standing on a sandbar. No storing the lobsters under there for the moment. We swam and walked to the other side where there was deeper, greener water. We could see over to the beach where there was a big pile of breeze blocks, so touchwood the hotel is going to mend the wall.
