Topics of conversation:
The Brave Boy is staying with The Pirate and has not been in the sea here, although being from Cornwall he knew what to expect. It's not easy getting in on a good day when it's chilly and today was really rough, with a strong current as the tide was just turning. It was too rough for The Pirate but The Brave Boy went straight in. The Pirate looked longingly but we all agreed it wasn't safe. He was almost affronted when I told him to put his trousers back on and Sara said she'd get him in, but it's the getting out that is hard and when DK came out saying "scary" he sensibly decided against it. We'd had a bit of a scare a couple of days ago when he drifted out of his dept and The Poet and I swam him back in so we are all extra wary.
I didn't hang about much after I'd got out as the the sauna was calling and I spent an hour thawing out, reading the paper and preparing myself for moving a couple of tons of earth for reseeding. The weather was not conducive to much else this morning although Mertz and DK's son played golf in the drizzle. He beat him again.
