It's 21 June here in New Zealand, and our little polar bear group went for our official mid-winter swim today. We've actually done over a dozen swims so far this month. It didn't help that the sky was dull and grey, and I really felt the cold when we got out from the water. One of our summer swimmers, a guy, rolled up just as we three - myself, J, and The Young One - were leaving the beach. So we stood on the deck and cheered his entry into the water. He ducked under the cold sea and came up with a holler of a naughty word that must have been heard kms away.
Courtesy of my swimming friend, J, we all got certifcates to commemorate the occasion!
