freezing photography

Tricky, Anne and Ape

Not up to much this morning, as I was feeling distinctly dodgy. Must be the work coming up. Focused more on pics and the sauna today. We arrived the to news that the water was below 4 degrees C. Nando and Mrs Ape did 600 and 400 yards respectively and I had a few dips, but spent more time taking pictures.

Tricky and Anne posed for photos; Rose declined the cake; Mrs Ape ran a crit session on her lemon cake; I was reminded of underwater cycling whilst chatting to Pip; Pip the Elegant asked me if I was doing a mile(!?); Liz did her leisurely backstroke; Margy was deep in conversation with Anthony and Karen was enjoying the sunshine. And last, but not least Eddie had a big grin on his face.

    Hey Carl,

    I hope you are well?

    Always good to browse through your updates, I’m so impressed by all the cold immersions! The pics of tooting are great, the water looks so inviting!

    I have finally done it- I have booked my pilot to swim the solo channel cross in 2014! Let the training commense! Now I just need to acclimatise- I’m not as hardcore as you guys at Tooting yet!

    • Kerry – congrats on making the decision. Plenty of time to acclimatise! Look forward to seeing you down the lido sometime? Just £115 a year membership and lots of channel veterans for advice and support.
