Stormy Seas and Safety – Sat 15 Feb 2020

Twelve of us had a decidedly lovely Saturday morning dip and after an entire week of no Vitamin Sea, it was a welcome break. The waves were up to 2.25m but it was about an hour after low tide, the seabed profile flat so no plunging waves and we kept within our depth. These factors are always so important particularly and as we don’t really have any inland waterways that are either swimmable or attractive here on the island. BUT we have the sea. We then repaired to a delightfully warm zoo cafe for hot drinks and plenty of hot air. Honestly, you’d think we’d not met for six months!
