            sounds great Mark, hope you can post some pics.

            here is a webcam of a beach in the south west at Sfakia, as you can see we are having some blustery weather at the moment

                nice pictures, a bit too rough for a swim, even for me, hoping for better weather on Sunday, a quick dip and then hopefully someone will be ready with the meataxa or raki for a warm up

                    it is now dark here but the webcam is still showing an image from earlier this afternoon, looks like the weather has knocked it out  :o
                    ok again now!

                        Christmas Day swim in the sea…11am

                        I’m wondering if that’s enjoyment or sado masochism! 

                        Mind you, I remember someone suggesting we should do it in Aberdeen one year i.e. the North Sea with an average  ambient temperature of 2 degrees centigrade.  Needless to say I was busy that day too!

                        I wish you both well and trust it’s not raining and blowing a hoolie as you strip off and wade out into the surf.

                        Please post some pictures, I’m sure I’ll enjoy viewing them as I sip my Bucks Fizz and chuck another log onto the fire.

                            normally it is quite good there Jon, the area is well protected and the sea is still warm at the moment between 17 and 18C, it is the air temperature when you get out that is the problem, this is an annual event and usually well attended, however it is too early in the day for us as we never rise until at least 11am. 8-)
