With the water temperatures heading up beyond 16, Jellies were very much in evidence on Saturday morning. In what might be considered a slight overreaction, emergency services were called when one swimmer got four stings. These particular emergency servants were, however, immediately distracted by the sight of a camera and only made vague shapes to find the stricken swimmer. Left to his own devices, he resorted to dousing himself with vinegar and being chased by dogs who thought he was a chip.
A new swimmer got hooked on the sea on Saturday. Maria from Almeria came down with Myrtleville regular Roz O’Brien. She went in with a wetsuit on, came out and ditched it after 5 minutes and did another 40 minutes in togs. We told her it’s this warm all year round.
6pm today, Monday. 06.15 tomorrow, Tuesday morning. Swim Safe!
