I personally didn’t get into swimming because I wanted to do loads of laps or distances in the sea. It’s ended up that way a bit, but I do try to remember the reason I started sea swimming was
I was really, really fat: feckin’ huge I absolutely loved splashing in waves at a beach whenever I got the chance. Hours, I’d be in there. Saturday morning was a reminder of that. Not much swimming, but a great start to the day.
Lots of people went in and watched out for each other. Of course, it didn’t look too enticing at first.
James Slowey was first in and dispensing advice on his way out. “I wouldn’t go in there if I was you”, was the advice. The beard was weighing him down.
You did need to have a bit of focus to get in – gaps in the waves were in short supply.
It was like a bath when you got in, though. Like a bath.
Swim tonight at 6.00. Forecast is still a little Easterly but much lighter than the weekend, so hopefully some swimming will be possible. We can’t go playing all the time!
