When I was a kid we used to go to North Wales a lot. It was only when I
went to the Med that I realised you were supposed to be able to see your
feet when paddling :-)

Not a single person in the water. Why is that, Graham?

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 down.

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.
