More swimming problems

After January swim, originally uploaded by seadipper.

The swimming club lock was glued up again this morning - this has been happening about twice a week since Christmas. Who could it be? Obviously someone with a grudge, and some time and money to waste.

So we walked along towards Kemp Town and gathered up some of the wood that is still lying about. The workmen complained even though we were saving them a job. They said it was the council's wood.

We lit our fire and had our swim. There is a strong offshore wind and it was close to the water's edge, so nobody was disturbed. Then the council's seafront officer came along on his quad bike to say we shouldn't be doing that. I pointed out that if there was proper law enforcement on the sea front we would be using the swimming club premises for which we had paid instead of having to change on the beach in the cold. I also reminded him of the lack of action last week when the jet skiers were about.

It would be nice to think that the council official told the workman off for wasting his time but that would be expecting that there was a prevalence of common sense.
