The wild west coast beaches were playing pretty nicely over Easter so we heard out to meet up with our lovely friends and do a spot of body boarding in the big waves.  I spent hours in the water with Lucy and then on my own just mucking around in the waist high stuff.  The beach certainly deserves it’s reputation for demanding care and respect.  The power of the water sucking out after a big set of waves is quite incredible.  Even if it’s just around your knees and thighs it’s easy to see how swimmers lacking experience and/or confidence can get into trouble quickly.  We saw the guys in the boat pull a few people out and drop them back at shore.  It’s good to know they are there watching over everyone.
