Nigel says he doesn’t think he will ever get over being so close to the unbridled pleasures of the sea. He can see it from his bedroom window and then it’s only a brisk 5 minutes walk down the road……. and, it seems, he is taking robust advantage of its said closeness.
He told me that he had never seen anything so wonderful, and cussed again that he’d forgotten to pack his speedos, as he has never ever swum in a salt water pool before. He said that he even wondered whether he should just throw caution to the wind and go for a swim in his pants ……
But, swimming in your underpants can have consequences he decided, so he just embraced the moment and the spectacular view …….
…….. and vowed to always make sure he had his speedos about his person wherever he was from now on in, lest any other unexpected swimming opportunity should arise, and show him found wanting!
I have to say, it’s a brave soul who embraces the sea in October, and have told Nigel to stop beating himself up about it.
Cornish people are born with the sea in their blood and most likely it’s much thicker than our own Midland blood, coupled with the fact that it probably contains an innate sort of antifreeze mixed in with it. If Nigel really wants to swim amongst the locals, he should, if he is asked again, take his next holiday in Bude, in the summer ………. and then I would advise him to get measured up for a wetsuit!!!!
