First day of the year in the water yesterday (sunday 17th January) and the tone seems to be set for the year - global warming, err cooling, well, cooling then warming. Perhaps it should be called Global Indecisiveness. Two weeks of knee deep snow and the golf courses of Crawley transformed into the pistes of the Alps, only flatter. Then a day like yesterday where it felt like spring had arrived early.

It was a little bit choppy for SUP, hence myself and Clyde looked like 80 year old who'd had their zimmer frames stolen. Very wobbly and inelegant, but you do stay very warm and it's good exercise. Pics by Liz and there are more, but the website won't let me upload anymore. Will maybe try later.
