Not a nice way to end the day

Things were looking promising.

Beautiful warm day.....check.

Finishing work at 6pm (for the first time in 2 weeks - official end time is 4:30pm)....check.

Heading down to beach while its still lovely and warm.....check.

Only to find a small crowd of people gathered around watching ambos try to resuscitate a 60-something year old gentleman who had drowned. They couldn't.

So I didn't go for my swim. Some people still were, but frankly I found it quite sacrilegious to be swimming in waves a mere 50m away from a body bag.
