OK - it might not seem brave to you but believe me, this water was very chilly. Exceedingly.
But my children - two of my children - are made of resilient stuff and spend the day on Saturday, defying the cold, braving the waves and having an absolutely whale of a time.

Our first summer day on the beach this year. We visited two beaches, both in Almuñecar. The first one was busy and wide, with the town at our backs. We were surrounded by incredibly noisy, boisterous and uninhibited local Spanish people - it is their beach, after all. The other, which we found later in the day, was at the furthest end of the town and we hadn't been there before but we loved it. There were three little bays backed by high cliffs. Designated a nudist beach, it seemed as though most of the town's people shunned it and it was wonderfully peaceful. There were a few naked bodies, which is fine by me, some quieter and more peaceful families and a few foreigners, reading books or just chilling - not yelling into mobile phones, having Fanta fights or shouting at their children...
I hope by the next time we go, the water will have warmed up just a tad...I went in but my, was it cold!
How are your summer plans shaping up - water, pool or somewhere else?
