Just come back from a wonderful week in Sardinia with Swimtrek. Good company, good food and great to have a bit of hot sun and some good long sea swims. The highlight for me was meeting this octopus, apparently they come into shallow water at this time of year to find a mate.

What a beautiful creature, you might notice that it has a leg missing, I wonder how it was lost? It looks amazing when it swims, transforming into a jet propelled streamlined dart, they can move quite quickly if they want to.
The sea temperature was about 23ºC, lovely.
Back up to the lido as soon as possible, it's probably about 16ºC and will take a bit of getting used to.
