It was a long day of ducks and bees so at 4.30 I wanted to go for a swim.
It was windy on the beach, but the banks of shingle protected the shoreline and kept the sea remarkably still. So still there were no kite surfers. It was perfect.
It was cold but glorious – one of the best swims I have had this year.
I am not sure how much Kainaat likes to swim, but he comes in to keep me company
James came along as I was particularly worried about sea monsters.
And of course we played with the frisbee
We weren’t there long – only about 30 minutes – but it was brilliant.
N.B. the question is, can I channel enough heroic wild swimmer energy to keep me swimming here through October and maybe November ?
