Only the Brave

Yesterday at 10am saw some enthusiastic people go into the water in aid of the local RNLI.  Hubby looked up the water temperature when we got home and the North Sea was around 7º C (44.6 F). with land temperatures hovering around 13º C (55.4 F).
I can’t say they actually charged into the water, but there was some joyous barking from dogs who desperately wanted to join in. RNLI lifeguards were already in place in their wet suits, and although participants were not as many as we’ve seen in previous years, it was a pretty good turn out.

We were actually on the beach as they had quite a distance to cover before actually getting wet as you can see from this looking back to the prom.

However, there were a couple who were keeping socially distant

We walked back along the shoreline. Beautiful.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Good for them. Nothing on G-d’s green earth would get me into that cold water.

  2. That is a beautiful beach… I am green with envy that you have it so near to you!

  3. This is very brave thing to do. Or very foolish. Or both. Who knows.

    When my family visited Florida 3 years ago, Sparky, son#2 and my BIL all took the plunge into the ocean on New Year’s Day. Brrrrr!!
