It is FREEZING! Can’t you tell?!

This afternoon, we braved Fanore beach. By ‘braved’ I mean sprinted through a mile of soft sand in pelting rain, sleet, hailstones in force 1,000,000 wind, much to the amusement of all the other feckers nice people sitting in their cars. Then, when we were sufficiently drenched, the sun came out. All smiles in above shoot are completely fake, I assure you. But… I was very snug from neck to waist in my hoodie. Which, on a day like today, is really saying something. I’m never taking it off.

My thanks to Alb for the great photos and for freezing his mitts off for me.
