Nothing to do with being a baby. My body requires at least an 80 degree water temperature to fully enjoy the swimming experience. I have sensitive nerves.

the sun can't heat up the 39.75 trillion gallons of water to a good temperature in one day.
Several years ago my girlfriend and I took a trip out to California and while there drove up to Tahoe. She LOVED swimming in that pool of ice water! It was a hot August day and I just couldn't do it.

As a kid, we went to natural springs to swim, beautiful crystal clear water gushing out of the ground into the river, where you could swim with 2 foot long bass. The problem is, the water was 65 degrees. It was so refreshing after that split second when you jump in and your body goes into shock.

As an adult, the shriveling experience is frightening, lol.
