Whitstable: DFLs, Oysters (no cards), Pots of Prawns, Home Brew and No Wetsuits Allowed

The long good bye to summer began in Whistable last weekend. Great to join the lovely Elspeth from No Wetsuits Allowed for a leisurely Sunday morning dip. @NoWetsuits swim at West Beach throughout the year – Lovely stuff and being just an hour or so from London, Whistable is a great Down From London (DFL) salt water swimming sanctuary to escape to  🙂
