Christmas Day Swim 2013

Siobhan Russell and Gary Frost were busy with cameras yesterday, with the usual huge crowd of charity and fun swimmers on the beach for Christmas.  Siobhan has loads of pictures on her Facebook page.  I’ve just taken a few for here…

Finbarr Hedderman joins in and pretends to think it’s cold so the others don’t feel bad. In reality, he’s rubbing his hands at the thought of getting a few hours done in the toasty warmth.

Siobhan has too many pictures to include them all, so here’s a completely random representative shot…which just happens to include two of my cousins.

Gary and Siobhan discuss their chosen fields…”Yes, stills are all very well, Siobhan, but I make MOOOVIES……”

And here is that latest mooovie….He’s getting better by the day.

 

Right, I’m off for my 08.15 St. Stephen’s Day swim now!  Owen O’Keeffe is coming  from Fermoy, so we’ll need an engine to keep up with him.
