It's still only April, but already it's reaching 17C. Perfect weather for our first (British) beach visit for the year wouldn't you say. Well yes you would! That is until you actually get to the beach and the temperature has dropped to 12C and you can only just see where you're going for all the mist. Ringstead is one of my favourite beaches ever - and I've never seen it quite like this. The sun tried ever so hard to break through - and for a few moments here and there it succeeded. But for the most part it remained like were on the set of a horror movie. It didn't stop the children suiting (wet suit) up and braving the waters that haven't even come close to reaching sensible swimming temperatures. All in all, not the sunniest beach visit, but a trip to Ringstead is always a trip worth making.
