Finally I knit outside again! I met Silvia at the Frauenbadi for some swimming, a lot of talking, coffee and a little bit of knitting.

Surprisingly the weather was glorious. At noon it had been pouring down and I was prepared to cancel our outdoor date and meet somewhere inside, but then the weather turned around 180 degrees and it got all beautiful, warm but not too hot and quite windy.

The river was still quite cold, the water temperature was only 18 degrees but we went "swimming" anyway. It's so relaxing to walk up and down the little bit of river and in between we were acutally swimming.

Every time I go to the Frauenbadi I just love the atmosphere. Situated right in the middle of the city, it's such an island of calmness. It's almost never crowded and today was no exeption, especially after the earlier rain. The laid back mood with the self serving kiosk helps making everybody feel welcome and trusted.

Right outside the Frauenbadi there are lots and lots of tourists who are running around Zürich and most of them would never guess what's behind that small door. When some of them accidentally stumble inside, they must feel quite magical.

Definitely one of my favourite spots in the summer time!!!
