Hi Rob,

No matter how warm the weather the North Sea is always really cold. It 
doesn't stop everyone from taking a dip but other factors also have an 

a) when the tide out it is a hike to reach the water and it's only a few 
inches deep when you get there.

b) the weather forecast for the day was lousy so the number of visitors were 

c) there was some sort of carnival on in the town.

I remember years back my youngest son was waist high in the water about 20 
yards out and he shouted that there were jelly fish about. I had those 
little white ones in mind about the size of a thimble which are quite common 
so I told him not to worry. A few moments later I saw one washed up on the 
beach about the size of a plate and patterned in various shades of brown. I 
looked around and they were everywhere. Cue 'Psycho' shower scene music in 
my head and Roy Sheider 'Jaws' expression on my face :-) We got him out of 
there real quick and no harm was done (they were probably harmless anyway) 
but it was never the same again for my family.
