31 July NZ time
Four of us went swimming at Hataitai Beach today - myself, J, The Young One, and Thong Man. The water was extremely cold. The Young One let out more than a few sudden yelps as she struck the water. But kudos to her for swimming with bare feet. Feet and hands get so cold.
It took me hours afterwards to get warm.
Today has been cold throughout the country. Snow, rain, everyone bundled up in thick layers. And we went swimming? In the sea? No, don't call us 'mad'. Heroic, perhaps?'' Or brave? Yes, I like the word 'brave'. 'Brave' will do just fine ... stop laughing...
