One woman's wild swimming adventures in the west country

Nippy Tinside

Mackerel Skin SeaCold Water TanA wonderful swim this morning in a pale turquoise sea that suddenly transformed to the colour and texture of mackerel skin as we headed out to the buoys. It felt cold, and no wonder – it’s a mere 7.3°c, the coldest so far on Pauline’s sea temperature graph (see the Devon and Cornwall Wild Swimming Website link on the right of this page). I had a proper cold water tan, and got the biggest after-drop of the year having stayed in for longer than was perhaps sensible. Luckily I was able to shiver my way down to Corinthians where I sat on the radiator and consumed a large cream tea. Creeping in Bravely
