High Tide17:45 (2.10m)
Low Tide22:59 (1.10m)
Sea temperature: not taken
Sea conditions: rough, massive current, scary
Weather: freezing with a very strong north wind
Joined by: it all went to hell in a hand-basket today as some of The Swimmers had been out and about in the village last night and needed a lie in, others were being godly and others were still not well. Sara and the poet went in at normal time, complete with hangovers, and reported back to me in bed, still not feeling 100% and listening to the wind rattle the house like a matchbox and DK played the Joker card by taking his yearly lie in. I did join DK down on the beach later to see if we could get in but it was just too low and too rough. Our routine has been disrupted this last week by the cold and ill health, but the water has kept in the 4/5 degrees area, so warmer in than out and it's good to be able to make use of the beach hut. It is a godsend. The swimming itself is not what makes it hard in the cold weather, when the wind gets up it is simply impossible to get dressed quickly enough unless you have some shelter and this is debilitating. The forecast is for snow and the wind to drop, hopefully we will be back to normal soon.
