Hi everyone, hope you're all well.
In the last few days it's started to get really cold here. I'm still swimming in the morning but can't stay in the sea very long as it's now down to around 9 degrees in the water .. brrr. It's a beautiful start to the day though, and I'll keep doing it as long as I can. 'Wild swimming' has really taken off here - is it the same in Japan?
Sunrise in Hove
Hove Beach (just before a swim)
We're also in the last few weeks before Christmas. I'll be doing a festive blog just before Christmas Day, but in the meantime, here are some pictures of the Brighton Christmas lights. What do you do to celebrate Christmas? I usually go to my mum's home in Yorkshire, but this year I'm staying in Hove, where I'm hoping to do a Christmas Day swim!
As usual, please get in touch with any comments or questions. It would be great to hear from you!
