There is a storm in London but over here the weather is incredibly warm. It is unfair, isn’t it? It is so warm that you don’t need a coat to walk. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t have a bright sunshine, but it feels nice to be able to go outside without as many layers as in London. I like it over here right now: we are able to go everywhere without being bothered by the masses of tourists we usually have during the peak of the season.
We went to various small beaches around Hyeres and Toulon. We couldn’t resist it. We had to get into the sea. So we did. This is something that I have never done as a local. But now I have an excuse: I am a Brit! So we went swimming. We were not the only ones, but clearly it showed that we are not from here. You are not supposed to enjoy a good swim in the sea after mid-September if you live here.
It was good to swim. In fact, maybe, just maybe, it is good to break old habits sometimes. Do you do it too?
