    Yesterday, Hengistbury Dorset. Quite warm-ish once you're swimming.

    Had my first today at Bantham in South Devon. Delightfully cold. I was going to surf but the waves were pretty lame. I prefer the North side of Devon and Cornwall for surfing.

    Not the sea but river thames yesterday at desborough island. It was glorious to feel cool for a while

    Sunday, Herne Bay. Towards the end of a 9 mile walk. Really warm and refreshing.

    So the new term has begun and most of the tourists have gone - so are these school pupils ?
    Now THAT is the sort of school sports I might well have enjoyed ...
