Sea temperature: 14.2
Sea conditions: good
Weather: odd
Joined by: so many people that's I'm just going to put 'The Usual Suspects' from now on - unless there are special absences or particularly exciting quests. The picture below shows the current regular group in its entirety.
L to R - Sara, The Artist, The Light Entertainment, The Pirate, The Poet, DK and Luna the dog
Over the last couple of days we've had very changeable weather and this morning was almost foggy, but it was certainly warmer. The Artist is still feeling the cold and has been swimming with her grey felt beret on, and (as I think I've mentioned before) she has the class to pull it off.
Legs's Kransekake
The balance is changing to our summer routine; chat has been less and the swimming more, this is because the weather and sea temperature make it easier to stay in for longer or because, like today the heavens opened. The rain was warm and heavy, almost tropical and we swam with it pouring all over us, and our clothes on the beach. So we didn't really get dry. Yesterday however, we welcomed DK back from his trip to Norway, he had actually swum in Oslo Fjord, which he said felt considerably warmer. The family had a great time, attending family reunions and meeting up with all generations and eating very well indeed. It was Legs's birthday yesterday and, like the Queen, she had 2 celebrations - one out there and one back here, although there appears to have only been one cake and a  mighty fine one too. DK had been the star attraction at the Jazz Club in the neighbouring town last night and both Legs and No. 1 Son had a lovely evening listening to him and the music, he's quite the showman.
