We guessed it was going to be the last day of summer. We had had a late spell of hot weather in mid-September and the forecast was for the last hot day for a while on Monday the 21st of September.
We arrived at Shoreham Beach at about 12:30 and met up with four of our friends who had been there for an hour or so. I immediately went in the sea for a swim for about 20 minutes to half an hour and could have stayed in longer. Conditions were perfect. But I knew that Julie was going to be keen to start our picnic lunch very soon.
We lazed in the sun and chatted till about 3:30 and then packed up to leave the beach thinking that we may not get another such opportunity again this year. So we took a parting shot of the beach. You can see that very few people were taking advantage of the good weather.
Three days later the temperature at eight in the morning was 8 degrees centigrade and by midday the temperature had only got up to 14 degrees.
