Calendar posing.

I’m sure that, like me, whenever a non-swimmer realises that you’re swimming in the sea in Winter, you get the “Jayzus, you must be mad” or “You need your head examined”, friendly comments.

I always ignore these, because I know it’s not true that you have to be mad to enjoy OW Winter swimming.  Or at least, I thought it wasn’t true, until I saw the crowd who’ve started getting their pictures taken on the frozen beach in “Calendar Poses”.

I don’t know where they get their calendars, but I’m not shopping there.  Funnily enough, it’s all James, James, James in this game…

James Slowey goes for it in his January Man Calendar pose.

The old dog for the hard road, Jim Shalloo shows the younger James how it’s done.

Still, let’s not blame the boys, or the Jameses.  There’s Mnás at this lark too.

Anything they can do, I can do – waaaaay better. Ms. Collins reclines.
