Unusually for West Cork it’s a frosty morning. So I decided to dip in Baltimore rather than drive to Lough Hyne. The whats app is pinging and Emer and Yvonne are joining me .
My heart is pounding as we get in, one submerged and staring to swim it feels ok and we swim out to the bouy and back. It is the after wards once dressed in layers of warm clothes, I begin to feel it and start to shake. I have brought hot tea with me so gets my inside warm and I manage to walk up home a bit gingerly on the ice.
It is not till after a hot shower to I begin to feel my fingers and toes again.
