Went over to Hunstanton today to view the Christmas Day swim (quick paddle was more the order of the day). Volunteers and their supporters marched down to the sea and are led into the water by the organizers.
After a little frolicking time, they walk back – extremely cold needless to say – as it was sunny but with a very cold wind.
I think though that our favourites were these two Where's Wally characters:
There were several hundred people watching and cheering and probably around 80 or so swimmers. This was the first time we had witnessed this - more power to their elbows I say.
