If you’ve not jumped into the sea for a dip this summer, you’re missing out.
I’ve swum at Southsea all year round and at times it has been nothing short of acidic.
If you’ve ever suffered brain-freeze agony from an ice cream, a January swim leaves you with delirium and a Mr Whippy swede.
This unseasonal weather has helped boost the water temperature to 18 degrees which, for the UK, is a rarity.
If you leave work a tad clammy with skin folds sticking together and beads of sweat cascading, make a quick detour to the beach on the way home.
I can guarantee that a short, sharp sea dip on a balmy summer’s evening will awaken your senses.
