Upon returning from 30+/40 degrees in Australia to what feels like minus 30+ degrees in Scotland I was feeling a little bit on the miserable side. But it’s hard to be miserable when the daffodils and snowdrops are in bloom!
There are still icicles.. and a lot of snow..
..but it’s the little things that make me smile. The little flashes of colour and signs of life, hopefully marking the end of winter!
So I was standing on the floating pontoon moored just off of Coogee Beach just keeping my balance and no more in the rough sea… Big toe gushing with blood and jellyfish stings whipped across both legs.. Not the most successful trip to the beach ever! All I had wanted was a little swim in the sea to finally kill my hangover (hangovers in 35 degree heat not so pleasing as it goes!).
So as we stood bouncing about in the sea we took note of just how many of these very stingy jellyfish there were floating about in the water, where we knew we were going to have to jump! They look so pretty and graceful too.. But boy do they hurt! Neither of us mentioned the blood pouring out of my toe but we both knew that the other was also contemplating just how many shark attacks there have been in recent months/ past year or so!
Plucking up the courage… And plotting a path (we hoped) amongst the pretty sting bombs we went for it and dived back in the warm, salty water! A faster swim to shore was never done before..
We stopped off on the way home for a small beverage.. Celebratory or to calm the wounds? Regardless… This passionfruit cider (with a healthy amount of ice) sure is hitting the spot!
And no.. There was no peeing on the jellyfish stings!! 😉
