Wednesday Wonder Swim

It was pretty bleak on Wednesday, overcast, gray – again – yet the lure was there, the pull of that salty water, that odd sensation when your brain cries YES and your body wonders what on earth you are doing. Yet, as ever, it was good, in fact wonderful. As you can sea we kept our distance as per the advice as it just isn’t worth the risk. Wouldn’t life be easier if the coronavirus was visible! Then it might just stop the ‘idiot-I-am-immune-brigade’ from ignoring the new social etiquette! At least we can still swim 🙂

Accuweather 11 degrees, real feel, 7, wind SW, 113 km/h, gusting 28, pressure 1014. Met Office, 12 degrees, real feel 8, wind SW, 16 km/h, gusting 25, pressure 1014.. Channel Coastal Observatory wave height 0.85m, max 1.45m, sea temp 8.8 degrees.
