Who does not like a good swim in open oceans in summers. However, with the threat of coronavirus looming large, most of us have been tied withing the premises of outhouses. However, a woman has devised a way to experience the vastness of an ocean at her home and her trick is winning the hearts of the internet.
Joanna Donnelly, a meteorologist by profession took to Twitter to post a video of her swimming in a circular pool. However, to everybody’s surprise, she had tied herself to a nearby pole with a rope. This made sure that she did not move forward despite her swimming forward. The clip shows, Donelly, clad in a swimming costume, cap and glasses swimming with all her strength, with rope hold her back.
‘Don’t forget the armband’
In the caption, she revealed that she was inspired by Yotue and Leo Hynes and now could successfully swim at home. Her trick has captured everybody’s attention with the post being viewed over nearly 3 0000 times. It has also been liked over 73 times and been flooded with comments. While a lot of users have lauded the “perfect solution” others had some genuine questions.
How do you empty it. Genuine question.

That could be the perfect solution for me… wow! Do you feel resistance on the bungie?

That pool has a filter and is probably chlorinated! The water could be 6 months in the pool. You assume it was filled since the hose pipe ban last week! But hey!

Amidst lockdown, it seems that not only human but animals are also enjoying a swim. Recently, Bollywood actress Tisca Chopra shared a video where a group of monkeys seems to be having a swell time and swimming in a pool said to be at Borivali, Mumbai. Sharing the video, the actor wrote, “#PoolParty must’ve been watching and waiting for years. Saw the opportunity and jumped right in. #monkeyingaround #everymonkeyhasitsday,” she captioned the video.
In the clip, as one monkey sits on the railing of a balcony, another can be seen having fun on the windowsill of a house. Suddenly it swings and then jumps into the swimming pool. After taking the plunge, the monkey then swims leisurely and then goes to a corner…
