Air temperature 17c, water temp slightly more bracing. Was great fun though. Lots of huge waves and no way was I not going to enjoy myself.
And anyway, the weather was breaking from the west.
Drying myself off afterwards in the wind was the coldest I have ever felt. Ever. I almost did a comical falling backing into the sea, which was roaring in.
And Clare laughed herself almost sick.
I was surprised, to say the least too!
