Spring weather for the first day of Spring — almost unheard of.

Walking along the beach this morning there were even kids swimming, I know this isn’t proof of warm weather, but to a casual glance it makes it look like it! The low tide was I think the lowest that I’ve ever seen, flat expanses of sand, the whole of groyne exposed, weedy rock pools that are normally hidden. In addition the water was incredibly clear, from the pier we could see the bottom where it was at least 2m deep, again, something I’ve never seen before.
