( modified quotation from Laurence Sterne)
After a glorious sunset we slept like logs and spent the next morning dipping. There were clouds but they evaporated by afternoon, then we were driven the 30 minutes to Radium Hot Springs. There we dipped again but this time for our small dose of radiation, as the name suggests; a long time ago they found radon in the waters, the breakdown product of radium, and the measured dose of radiation is now however considered safe for swimming. Here the warm water comes in at one end, and so at the far end it is cooler and so swimming was possible. Enjoy the photos!
