Default Anyone else braved the sea yet?

For the first time in what has to be 25 years I went for a swim in the sea in the UK yesterday and I have to say that it wasn't as cold as I thought and definitely not as cold as the sea off some Greek islands I've visited.

Are there any more mad fools out there?

I love swimming in the sea and was toughened up by living near the NE coast until I was 21. I have to admit I haven't been in the sea in Britain in years, but if I was near there I would be in today. I'm tempted to have a dip in my grandchildren's paddling pool to cool off.

Go for it Marmo. If I was on the beach I would be in the sea although only for a paddle as I haven't got a cossie here at the van. Trouble is, its so hot we are staying around the van as its unfair to take the dogs out in this heat

I occassionally go for a paddle - I would today if I were there but I don't fancy swimming in that grey water.

Yes, I had some lovely paddles this week at Eyemouth, although I have to say the water was quite cold. Grandson Ben even had a swim although he had us in hysterics at his antics trying to brave the cold water. It was on Tuesday which was a really hot day and we had just arrived at lunchtime so sandwiches for lunch then down to the beach. I was with my Daughter and her little 4 year old boy so the kids had a great time, especially little Callum who likes to make sandcastles then dig a ditch down to the sea and watch the water come round his moat. Needless to say Nana also had a great time helping him. We all went looking for crabs etc. in the rock pools and it was much more pleasant paddling in them as they had warmed up a little. I love being by the sea!!!

That sounds like a quintessentially British day on the beach to me Daisymay. (Big word eh?) Sunshine, sand, sea, rock pools, sand castles and paddling. It just doesnt get any better.
