Swimming and singing in the sea

Saturday mornings, 10.30, seas us swimming, currently, at Yaverland, by the sailing club. Neither of the forecasts I consulted just prior to our gathering were particularly accurate, the wind being stronger and colder but hey! We’re sea swimmers and weren’t put off. The numbers were down a little on last Saturday when the sun blazed but still there were about 17 of us including a couple of new people – well done! We swam a little, chatted more and then did a rendition of ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’ in tribute to Terry Jones. A quick exit after a zinging dip and then the usual battle to change, I reckon this should become an Olympic sport, one in which I would always lose. Hot water bottle under feet, then cuddled, followed by a delightful time in Sandown Zoo’s cafe, a delightfully warm venue and we enjoy adding to their coffers. (PS please forgive the quality of the photo – waterproof cameras tend to have water on the lens!)
