Wet & Windy but HAD to be done!

Probably not a subject about which everyone wants to know but, having put it off for a year (my excuse is always ‘circumstances beyond my control’) I finally had my smear test today. Hence, I definitely and absolutely needed to purge all stress and what better way than to throw oneself into the nearest body of cold water, namely Sandown Bay 😊 The recuperative power, for me, is so powerful! The only downside were the wet and windy conditions so it did take some time, a sausage bap and two large mugs of tea (do all Morrison’s offer unlimited tea and coffee?) before warmth touched the places that icy fingers had previously reached. Bit rough too!

Accuweather 7 degrees, real feel 3, wind SSE 18 km/h, gusting 24. Met Office 7 degrees, real feel 4, wind SE 19 km/h, gusting 35. Channel Coastal Observatory average wave height 0.52m, max 1.19, temp 8.4 degrees.
