Saturday sun – almost!

The weather seems to have changed from good most of the time with a few bad days to bad most of the time with the odd good day. Luckily, I managed to order good weather for our Saturday swim and it was even delivered at the correct time slot. 😊 However, the violent storms have once again changed the beach profile and a huge amount of sand has been shifted leaving a rough and pebbly seabed which was quite a surprise judging by the gasps and shrieks. The water was slightly warmer than last week so it couldn’t have been that…surely!

OOOooo those pesky pebbles!
