Weekend swims

Lots of swimming at the weekend, with groups in right through Friday to Sunday.  It was slightly chillier in the morning at 8.5c, but a nice warm 11c on land made up for it.  Afternoon swimmers found it over 10c in the water – very nice for April.

We had a new swimmer, Sean, down on Saturday morning for the first time in Myrtleville.  I was helpfully explaining where we’d be going and what to do if he wanted to turn back etc.  What I should have been doing was asking him how fast he was.  I knew pretty soon as he disappeared over the horizon ahead of me with the likes of Eddie and Eoin.  I could almost hear him laughing – but he was too far ahead. No need to worry there, then 🙂

A sure sign of Summer is the ferry bringing in the tourists.  Always good to see.
