The Sea is a Salt Bath

Went for a swim this afternoon – first time I had been down to the beach for a while.  I had been a couple of weeks ago at dawn and the water did not seem that warm.  But late this afternoon at the end of a day in the sun, the water was unpleasantly warm.  Getting out a bit from shore the water temperature was a degree or two cooler, or should I say, less hot.  But it still felt too warm to stick your head under.  Temperature of the water would be around 33 or 34 degrees.

At least the sunset was nice!  And still the sun refuses to touch the horizon but disappears in the haze before it gets down that far.  This photo does not do it justice – the sun here was actually a deep red.
