By midday the hazy grey mist had burnt off to reveal a glorious bright blue sky and sparkling sea. The gigantic hairy Bear dog and I were on the homeward stretch of our walk. As I strolled along enjoying the sunshine and filling my lungs with ozone I was taken completely by surprise as Bear made a beeline for the brine towing me behind him on the end of his extending lead!! I was not intending to take my first dip of the year fully clothed so it was with some relief that on reaching the surf Bear only wanted a lie down not a swim!!
