Despite the reasonably high temepratures today it was quite breezy from the west, but it was a very pleasant breeze, and there were quite a few people down on the beach today and at the Links Kiosk, both less than 100 metres from where I live. I took some photographs toward the end of the afternoon and there were quite a few youngsters in the water, but I expect most adults would still find the water too cold without a wetsuit (I certainly would). Here are a couple of the photographs I took from my apartmeent today:
Nairn Beach - 21 July 2008

Earlier in the afternoon I did a lovely long circuit on foot, from here along the path toward the swimmingg pool and on along the shore-path past almost to Nairn Golf Club and up around Seabank, Albert and Thurlow Roads before turning back down onto the links and putting pitch area and home - a very pleasant walk at a brisk pace in short-sleeves; the warmish breeze off the sea was lovely. I'll be doing similar walks most days this week if the weather holds up as promised.
PS/ I'm watching the Prom on BBC4 until 9.30pm; Saint-Saen's Symphony No. 3 is being played just now by the French Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (Myung-Whun Chung conducting) and it's a real treat. However, as it's still about 16 degC here at 9pm with no wind I shall take myself down on to the beach again immediate after it ends to watch the 'gloaming'.
