I was surprised (although I don't know why) but without thinking I smiled and 'ok, lets do it then' Aaron thought we were mad and I'm sure many people would agree with him, (especially my friend Sam who is such a wimp she won't get in a pool by the end of September!) but I figured if hundreds of mad people survive a swim in the Channel at this time of year then in 22 degree sunshine it shouldn't be too bad.
It was bloody cold though, as you can probably tell by how I'm holding my arms on the way in! I did swim but not for long, Dad on the other hand was in quite a while. We did have a few funny looks from people walking along the beach path, and we even got asked by some Russian tourists if they could take our photo!
Leo stuck his foot in the water and like a true child of Cyprus decided it was too cold. He did have great fun running around on the deserted beach though, the sand was almost snow like when we got there, all smooth and untouched. Great for making patterns and footprints!
