Yes, I remember the 14 C water temperature. No way I would ever go in there again, lol. 22 degree water feels really cold here in winter. And don't forget to mention that the 30 C summer days are like 20 days a year. There are probably more 15 degree summer days then 25+. And the wind blows so cold that you have to find a sheltered spot.

My parents had a vacation home in Northern Germany, about 20 minutes walk to the beach. Not that we would go there very often to swim or lie at the beach, walking the ocean floor at low tide is quite nice and interesting, though.
