I checked the conditions, the weather forecast and then checked them again. The wind direction meant that I should have got plenty of protection from the cliffs. I set the alarm, went to sleep….early start, Kynance Cove (on the Lizard Peninsula) here we come! Stunning place, especially on a sunny early morning. Was very annoyed to see another person in the car park…but they were leaving and from that point onwards I didn’t see another soul.
The conditions were a bit choppier than predicted and my ancient wetsuit wouldn’t zip up. They say you have to pay for your art and in the sea for 45 minutes, in April, with a dodgy zip…I did!
