The morning of New Years Day and these hardy folk of Lee on the Solent are taking a dip in the freezing sea. You might just make out an Isle of Wight ferry in the far distance, trying, I'm sure, not to mow down innocent yachtsmen. You might also see the jet skier in the mid distance. He has no need to worry because the new drink driving laws for water craft won't apply to him, as if jet skiers weren't dangerous enough already!
At midnight on New Years Eve we celebrated on the beach with mulled wine and fireworks
while I attempted to play Auld Lang Syne on my Scottish Smallpipes. Quite a bizarre experience really. I don't think I imagined it. However this after dinner view of the glassware on our host's dinner table does suggest we got through a fair bit of booze.
Not long now until Herbie sets off on her first cruise of 2008. Yippee!
