Water conservation, dancers, pink hair and Gibraltar.

Hard to see the link between all of those?  Not in Myrtleville.

Denis Condon is a committed advocate of saving water.  In preparation for metering, he filled his jerry can last January and devised a system to re-use.  As you can see from the picture below, he douses himself after the swim and catches all of the water in his foot bath.  He then refills the can and has had the same 10L for five months.  Fair dues, Denis.  An example to us all 🙂

Denis – never wastes a drop.

Other environmental activists around Myrtleville are the dancing duo of Bernie & Eddie.  They shun car heaters and central heating and warm up solely by synchronised dance.

Siobhan posed for this herself, so I’m sure she won’t mind me saying her new hair colour is only beautiful.  She, however, was not saying that and nor was Claire Frost!

Finally, one sensible picture.  Rian Herlihy continues her preparations for swimming the Straits of Gibraltar in June and was out in some lumpy water on Monday evening.
