300 metres into the sea at Clifton Springs
Again, a small detour from the return leg of my weekend away. Had the wettie with me so couldn't pass up the opportunity for some more swimming!
Unfortunately I didn't have enough confidence in my dry sack to take my camera as well with me, but not that it mattered as it also turns out it is a challenging feat to open up a backpack, a dry sack, and then use the GPS and/or a camera without getting them wet. And not being cheap pieces of equipment, I decided against it. This also means that I may have only been within 20m of the geohash, so I would call this a semi-successful attempt. Once I learn how to use the GPS a little more, I will see if I can view the route and check how close I got.
Got a weird stare from someone as I was about to descend into the cliffs carrying a wetsuit and a backpack, met a father and daughter with their dog near the beach who didn't think much of what was going on and got a compliment for being in the water on the way back to the car, apparently swimming at the beach isn't a common winter activity! Much more interaction than the two previous geohash missions!
