Reservoir Dogs & Mr. Pink

Beautiful swimming now, with sea temps up over 14.5c and sunshine when we get out.  Shivers are being banished.  We had a good turnout for a bank holiday Monday, with over twenty swimmers – including some new arrivals, who got to see the all-new Myrtleville shower experience.  Hopefully they’ll come back anyway.

Some of the Monday June 2nd group. They all look quite normal. It’s amazing what salt water exposure does post-swim.

Mr. Black, Mr. Black, Mr. Black and Mr. Black – but no Mr. Pink?

Reservoir Dogs – they’re missing Mr. Pink though.

So far, so normal.  Then the showers started.

What is Denis after starting now? Carmen shows how showering should be done.

Ah, here’s Mr. Pink now.  In fairness, Pat’s a true professional – always attired in a uniform befitting the activity.  Having a shower – wear a shower cap..

Swim times for May seem to have worked well, so we’ll keep them going at 18.00 Monday, 06.15 Tuesday and Friday and 08.15 Saturday.  There’s often small groups around on Wednesday and Thursday too at 06.15.  Swim Safe, whenever you do swim.
