Cold, calm & cheerful.

No point in pretending the water wasn’t cold last night – there were patches that came direct from the polar ice cap.  A good forecast for the week ahead should see it heading back up again from the 9c or less it’s at now, into double figures again.  We deserve that!  A good crowd of twenty five or so over the evening, including the main large group – who got the Siobhan treatment.

Main group of photo models – or swimmers – respond to Siobhan’s instructions to Line Up.

Some people who were in early couldn’t contain their glee at being done and seeing the others off.

Laughing Lynch – On ye go now, sure it’s lovely and warm in there……

Pat Lowry has been swimming in Myrtleville regularly but always missed the pictures, so Bernard promised him a slot….

Of course, he has a hat 🙂

Pat’s Hat. Sorry, couldn’t resist that one. Showing my age.

For the small group who followed up last night with the 06.15 swim this morning, here’s what we got: worth getting up for.
