Waning Quarter Moon
I am loving that the weather and the water are warming up. One swimmer reported 15 degrees near Cork City. Over the past few weeks I was trying to swim in togs, but the furthest I could get to, was the gap. The others were swimming on Wednesdays in togs and getting much further so tonight I am joining them to see how I go.
Olympic sailer Maria Coleman is trying out her new paddle board. Love to give it a try. Here we are preparing to get in.
The water was amazing and we got to the island, swam infront of it half way and back, I even think I could have swam around the island. Next time, fingers crossed the temperatures stays as warm.
Turning the Plastic Tide Tips
I take my Chilly’s water bottle with me everywhere. What was fantastic was in Heathrow next to the entrance of the toilets was not only a drinking fountain but an easy to fill up water tap for my bottle. I did not need to purchase a plastic bottle for my entire trip. Just get rid of the water before going through security.
On my way up to Cork Airport I stopped in Clonakilty at Twig the refill store. I refilled lots of spices, floor cleaner, washing up liquid, shampoo and conditioner. I also got a Chilly’s coffee cup for € 19.95. There are different sizes, I got this small one which is the perfect travel size, so no single use coffee cups were bought on my trip either, and it held an Americano with a little milk perfectly. In fact you save money as most shops give money off your coffee if you have your own cup.
