My Cornwall TAN.

There are some beautiful beaches in England. However, when frolicking in the surf off the Cornish coast you should really wear a wet suit. Because it's bloody freezing.

(Only 15 year old girls opt for bikinis instead of wetsuits. They are seemingly immune to the cold, though they do look a bit strange once they've turned blue.)

If the wet suit fits you properly, others should be able to tell what you've had for lunch just by looking. Since it's so snug, it will insulate you against the cold like a neoprene forcefield!

Your face, hands and feet get nice and brown. The rest of you is white, white WHITE! 
I call this the Cornwall TAN.

You see all the great looking surfer dudes, with their tanned faces, hands and feet. But believe me, under that slick wetsuit they are so pale, they are practically see-through. 

How do I know this? 
You're just gonna hafta take my word for it.



  1. hahahaha- looks good! :-)


  2. It's a hot look! Although I'm not an English surfer, I too sport this look.

  3. I was told their would be pictures of the surfer dudes. With their lunch bits showing. But I'll take your bait and switch since you look so lovely in your Cornwall tan.

  4. @ Lotta, OK, I'll do one just for you. As soon as my husband isn't looking hahaha...!

  5. Sweet. You know my private email address.

  6. @ Lotta, oh it's gonna be too good to be private. You're gonna hafta share it!!

  7. seriosuly i so love ur posts they rock
    i would never have guessed thats why u wore a wetsuite i thought it was to protect u
    and umm if i was a young girl i would wear the bikkini also teehee

  8. Love this - I got a more concentrated Cornish Tan when I swam in the sea (probably because I was nearly naked) and I kinda wish I had stood on a weaver fish :?

  9. Oh, dear me to keep the white bits covered.... :O


Cuz You Rocketh.
