Do you like swimming in the sea?!

I was in Eastbourne yesterday and it was lovely! I did swim for over 3 hours!

I hate it! I prefer clean, clear chlorinated water! I’ll dip my toes in the sea but that’s as far as I’ll go! :biggrin:

Yes! I went to Greece a few years ago and swam out pretty far. I miss it.
You won't catch me swimming in the death soup

No. :afraid:
Can't swim, am no fan of the sea and don't enjoy being surrounded by cold water in most/all directions.

But the seaside here in the UK is lovely!
The temperature of the water was the big surprise. I can describe it as cool but after being in the water for around 10 minutes I didn't feel anything and stayed in for more than 2 hours.

It's a great experience and really good for health. And it isn't that cold as some people may think.
Yes!

It's different there as the weather is better.
But you should try the waters here.
Brighton, eastbourne, bornemouth, are all great. And several other places in Kent that I prefer to go.

You can try some lessons in the swimming pool first. Swimming is easier in the sea by the way.

The weather is much better in the south and quite mild as well as humid. I don't like humidity but going to Brighton is always a pleasant trip. Where do you live? Liverpool?
I don't like swimming anywhere :lol:
I'd rather be dry, warm and free from the risk of drowning :yes:
