When I went out for this mornings walk, it was dark, there was very Partly due to there being practically no wind, less than one knot from the south west-ish, and even at 8.8C, it felt mild. It certainly didn’t feel cold. Given that it was the first working walk of the year, it was very pleasant.
The contrast comes with the lunchtime walk. That it was light was obvious, so doesn’t really need stating. The wind though, was the first thing, there was a real bite to it. I must admit, I didn’t look at the temperature, but it was cold.
The water in the harbour at 0630 was calm, to the point of having that oily character. When reached the harbour at lunchtime, the harbour looked rough;
The pilot cutter was creating quite a bow spray as it came in. I was glad that I had put on my padded jacket, as well as a fleece. I. Didn’t really need it for the morning walk, most definitely for the lunchtime stroll.
A morning of contrasts.
