We have had a cool, grey spring and summer to date. You can count on one(maybe two) hands how many warm days we have had.
When the high tide and the sunshine arrive at the same time, swimming is the order of the day.
As we have shallow sandy beaches you wait for the tide to come in over the warmed sand which in turn warms the water, it also shorts the walk to the tide line.
Marley waits patiently while we swim. With the warmer weather and water come jelly fish. The small dollar size ones are not a problem but yesterday we encountered large egg looking jelly fish which have dangling, stinging tendalls.
As I was wading(I did go for a swim) into the water to take this photo I was stung on the ankle by one of these new comers to the beach. A great swim despite the new visitor. We are on day three of seven days of clear skies!!!
