End of the early swims

Open water sea swimming in Cork, Ireland

Jim Shaloo modelling the latest Myrtleville early morning headwear.

The picture is a bit blurry – you’d know Siobhan wasn’t around.   You’d also know it’s time to finish the morning swims when:

  1. Glow sticks are needed to find the other swimmers.
  2. A slight extra hip rotation when breathing lets you stare straight up at the moon.
  3. You can’t see the kelp underneath you, but you keep catching it with your hands to give you a nice scare (bet you’re sorry you missed that one, James).
  4. Stalwart swimmers send last minute tweets that they’re going to the pool (ah, Carol…).

It’s a shame, because the water is at 15.2c – toasty, as Mr. Finbarr would say – but it’s just too dark. So, four more Monday evenings at 6pm and Saturdays at 8.15am continuing for the Winter.
