I spent the first day of Autumn swimming in the sea at Lyme Regis. This is a photo from one of my trips there last year as I left my camera at home today. It was amazing to be in the sea at this time of year- the sun was shining and I was the only one in the water for a lot of the time I spent bobbing around. I think that maybe I am part mermaid because I am never happier than when in the sea, and the water temperature didn't seem to bother me much (although it has to be said I do come with a coating of blubber that helps). I'm sleepy, salty and sandy now, so i'll catch up tomorrow with some of the things i've been gathering lately.
