Turkey Swim – 2nd December

A good turn-out for 9.6 degrees in the water and 10 degrees on land.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day for Lisa Cummins’ Turkey Swim in Myrtleville.  Siobhan Russell had the foresight to bring a camera – thanks to her.

Bernard had organised mince pies and mulled wine afterwards – with the generous assistance of Jimmy Long, his daughter, Sheila and granddaughters.  So, thanks to Centra Crosshaven for this festive touch and to Jimmy for faciliating us as always, blocking his roadway at the top of the beach!

One myth put to bed today was that Lisa never, ever, ever gets cold.  While she didn’t actually shake so that she spilled her mulled wine, witnesses confirmed she did actually have a slight tremor in her hand after the swim.  That’s a first…..

Lisa - definitely cold: we have witnesses
