But the water temperature as I said is 20-25C most everywhere that is inhabited in this part of the world for lakes, but not in all places on the ocean. For example, the ocean waters around most of Nova Scotia tend to be quite cold.
I'm just finding it hard to image how water can be hotter than the average air temperature. The water gets heat added up by day and lost at night, so the water should at most be as hot as the average or a little cooler.
