Air temperature: 4 degrees. Water temperature: 6 degrees.
After tookapic.com/photos/171287 and tookapic.com/photos/174065 I finally plucked up the courage to go swimming in water colder that I've ever swam in before.
Just shows what lengths one will go to for a tookapic and how far one can swim on a 12-second self-timer ;)
Oh, and that's my 700th :)

Sure, we have a lot of winter swimmers in our area. There is a big celebration on NY, I even took some this year with -8C and strong wind "Winter swimming"
Wow, I can't imagine how cold 1,5 C water feels when it's -8 C!
Oh my. Committed or what. Probably, on reflection, or what.
Which one yellow cap is you? Congrats for your lucky 700 :D
Hihi, I missed that way of seeing things!
