All Sorts – Sat 8 Feb

It always amazes me the huge variety of the cold water swimming community, it doesn’t matter who you are, what your build, age, even experience, it’s just that strange quirk of wanting to be in the water, of that buzz your body feels despite the post-swim fumbling with zips (I need a zip course if anyone knows of one) hot drinks and sand everywhere. Some swim, some chat, most of us do both, but the feeling later is one of something achieved and maybe that’s all we need. Oh and forgive the awful quality of the picture but that’s the awful camera – now defunct after only six months!

All sorts in so many ways – people, kit, weather!
