Now I can't stand the sea! I hate sand, fish, crabs, salt water, drowning, sharks.... The list goes on! I actually enjoyed it this day learning to surf! I got very badly ripped off for the lessons but it was worth it! The instructor was a nice guy and I done pretty good for a virgin. I had my wee beach shoes on so I wasn't standing on fish etc I was sorted! Except for all the plastic bags and dead fish cutting about in the water! I've seen cleaner rivers coming from a nuclear power plant. The water is outrageously mingin. I was chafing like mad aswell, I was scared my shorts were Gona go up in flames so that didn't add to my bad mood!
