3rd Sea Swim in April....

Missed the glorious weather on Saturday doing inland dry stuff but headed off to the coast determinedly on Sunday despite gloomy skies.

Huttoft looked just TOO drab and drear, so we tried a couple of miles further north at charming Sutton on Sea, perhaps hoping that the beach huts might cheer the scene up a bit. Sea was the colour of dishwater latte (those of you who know me well know how little I would find that appealing!) and was merging into the misty murky sky - LOVELY!

Anyhow, after a bit of procrastination, and modelling our new stripy post swim towelling robes, we plucked up the energy to go for it.

Pretty cold, but we're getting tough now so we weren't fazed and enjoyed a really uplifting 20 minutes in great swell and breaking waves to bob around in. Nic lunged in much quicker than me as usual, but also succumbed to dead extremities more quickly too!

Steve was on photographic duties and we were all initially excited to think of the great footage, but... alas, it may have looked good on the phone, but it wasn't saved! My phone curled up and died that evening, so perhaps the sea spray was a bad idea?

Lousy photo Sandra! But it was taken by Felix (age 6) so not bad for a novice ... better attempt than Steve anyway.

Just fantastic to swim again and to have some depth and swell and waves! x

Well, I did crop the picture to cut out the REALLY unflattering bits but it's still not our finest hour I'll admit!
