If you read yesterday's blog and came down today in the hope of experiencing the same stunning conditions, you would have been mildly disappointed.

"No cold nuts!" exclaimed Tylney with a look of excited disbelief. "Excuse me?" said Karen giggling behind her hands at this rather unexpected comment. "I've got a new wetsuit! If I was wearing my usual old (& clearly not so faithful) 25 year old wetsuit, I would have had cold... Continue reading
