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:
- Glow sticks are needed to find the other swimmers.
- A slight extra hip rotation when breathing lets you stare straight up at the moon.
- 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).
- 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.
