Last swim of 2020

Last swim of the year yesterday. I headed over to Shoalstone beach to enjoy the beautiful winter sun, laying low in the clear blue sky.

The air temperature was 1°C, with the sea temperature 9.something °C. I don’t take a thermometer and the temperature recorded online is only the surface temperature detected by satellites, so I’m told.

I’ve noticed that it’s mainly women who sea swim daily. Is it because women do it for health and social reasons or are we just a bit bonkers?

Head over to Instagram ( for a clip which shows all the cruise liners at anchor in the bay. I’m looking forward to hearing the ship’s whistle from each of them as the clock strikes midnight tonight. It’s an eerie sound, as their low level horns echo across the bay and into the town.

I want to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year and beyond! Thank you for all your support and for taking the time to respond to my wordy posts and many stories.

Every day I get a little bit older and for that I’m truly grateful. Each silver hair is a memory of a good day. Luckily I have lots of them.

I’m looking forward to more wrinkles, silver hair and laughter lines. It’s evidence of a life well lived.

Stay safe. Much love to each and every one of my gorgeous sisters and misters.
