One day on from the storm…

Lovely sunshine last night, but a serious swell still on the water further out, after the Easterly that stopped the Church Bay swim.  Great crowd of over thirty swimming.

Everyone wanted their picture taken with the returning hero, Carol Cashell, back from New York.  Some guys even got dressed up for it..

Bernard & Carol – he’s basking in the reflected glory.

Peter O’Mahony was in with his SafeSwimmer Float and swears by it.  He says there’s no drag and it’s certainly more visible than just our hats.

If anyone is self-conscious about their weight, look away now.  Bloody Triathletes.

To explain the next series of pictures, Siobhan Russell was lurking in the waves with her camera demanding her subjects perform for “Baywatch” shots – a few of them with very unlikely “male models” – see last picture below.

There’s always someone to lower the standard.

Another great Monday night and a real pleasure after Sunday’s washout.  Lots more pictures online here – just not enough room to post them all.

One thought on “One day on from the storm…

  1. Well done to Siobhan Russell and Damian for the Monday night weekly review.
    It’s what Myrtleville swimmers is all about 🙂
