A few weekends ago friends came to stay and we went to Shingle Street.
There have been big changes. The spit that forms the lagoon has been flattened and has extended towards the shore. At high tide parts of it are now submerged.
We took the dogs – kill or cure treatment for Zephi.
He did really well until I wanted to walk to the end of the spit and as the tide was coming in the waves started to wash over the shingle and Zephi’s paws.
He lay down and I had to carry him back to safety.
The heroic wild swimmer needs to teach him to swim very soon otherwise he won’t be able to come on adventures!
On the way back the dogs wrestled Jude to the ground and pounced on him – such savage beasts
It was a brilliant time. now I can’t wait for Easter when I will definitely be going for a swim.
N.B. Of course I am still swimming in the sea – this past Sunday I swam with my heroic wild swimming friend at Sizewell. It was cold, but I am sure the sea was just slightly warmer than earlier in February.
