Swimming - in spite of the weather
Gales have been pounding the south west, with news reports excitedly talking about 'mountainous' seas. Today I reckoned that Blackpool Sands might be a good bet - the webcam there (thanks Venus cafe) showed what appeared to be calm seas. But on arrival this was not the case; there were high rise rollers and colossal undertow which was sucking back the shingle. I had to admit defeat and instead went to Warfleet Creek at nearby Dartmouth where I swam in the estuary with the ducks.
