Mid winter swim Breaker Bay 2014

Hi there

Well, in the end, I was persuaded to go on the Breaker Bay (Wellington) mid-winter swim today (21 June 2014 NZ time).  The water wasn't that cold at all but, oh my goodness, is it hard to get into the water at Breaker Bay.   The shore is so rocky and pebbly, and a downward slope, and everyone was slipping and sliding and falling in the water because the rocks were so submerged.

Still, J and I had a good time, with mulled wine and soup afterwards.

As you can see from the below photo, I am a two-towel person.  Also, sneakily, two bathing suits - .  don't tell anyone.


  1. I heard on Radio 2 in England today that the record for the number of people skinny dipping together has been broken in New Zealand - no swimming costumes at all ( and only one towel after, I suspect). So that wasn't you then? Perhaps you could start a new category for the most bathing suits worn whilst swimming.

  2. Thanks for review, it was excellent and very informative.
    thank you :)
