Here's me yesterday morning on Exmouth Beach. 'Let's go and watch the Christmas Day swim.' suggested The Second Martha Stewart. I'd have joined in of course but I'm at the tail end of a cold so that wouldn't have been sensible. It wasn't too nippy. My trusted Nordic cardie was enough.
The local boats including the local pleasure craft and the RNLI came in. I thought that I'd just be encouraging a straggly gaggle of a few brave souls.....
...like this lovely lady.
But no, it seems that half the town are game for a dip.
'It's not that cold.' I heard one person say. Even so most of them were out in about two seconds flat.
I lost The Second Martha Stewart in the crowd. I think that she must have been mesmerised by this guy!
Now that was a lovely start to the day. I'm sorely tempted to brave the waves myself next year if I do not have the sorry excuse of a cold then!
