Low Tide07:18 (0.70m)
High Tide13:38 (2.70m)
Low Tide19:50 (0.60m)
Sea temperature: confusing. We took it in the shallows, which felt really - 17.8 degrees, but then, once out into deeper water it was tasty. The tide was coming in and the sand and stones were cooling the water. 
Sea conditions: perfect
Weather: perfect
Joined by: The Usual Suspects, 3 LOTVs and Mertz
Topics of conversation: 
Running in the shallows, which The Pirate did whilst holding my hand, we must have looked bonkers skipping into the water. @Redsnapper had taken this video of me playing with the dogs on the beach on Saturday and he and I discussed how reassuring it can be that nothing changes on this edge of the world we live on, I was doing exactly the same thing in exactly the same place with different dogs 45 years ago.

The Vicar's wife came down later, when we were having coffee on the beach as Mertz is on holiday and we agreed that it is 'as good as the Med' at this time of year, now that the visitors have all but gone. 
DK's event - he's performing at the local tomorrow and it's such a hot ticket that it sold out immediately so he'd been discussing the emergency seating plan with the Landlord last night, he joked that he'd seated one of the LOTVs by the loos so that she could get in. We are too late for a ticket, but have promised to go in and heckle from the bar, which is where we had met him and Legs last night for a catch up pint and the poster had had us all wondering who the young man in the picture was.
Right, off to the estuary as the first of our 'holiday walks'.
