Christmas Swim 2011

As is traditional for me on Christmas Day, I decided to go for a Christmas swim in Ballycastle harbour.

I failed to find out whether there were other like-minded (eg crazy) people in the area that do the same Christmas tom-foolery, mainly due to my work overload in the weeks running up to Christmas day. So it was a solo swimming affair, but I was lucky to have an audience of two nature watchers sitting in their car who gave their car horn a mighty good tooting when I hit the water.

Here’s a small selection of photos/proof of the event.
