Plenty turned out for the traditional New Year’s Day swim in Albir today – a number in fancy dress, including the Christmas Grinch and there were numerous festive Santa hats bobbing about. Age was certainly no barrier as even a spritely 87 year old braved the water!
Many spectators came to watch this annual ritual on what was a beautifully sunny day with temperatures in the high teens and not a cloud in the sky. Some just had a paddle, but the vast majority braved what must have been chilly waters for a full on swim.
Afterwards they warmed up with cups of hot chocolate and churros, handed out on the beach and a big round of applause from all those that came to support them.
Certainly a great start to welcome in 2020... the week ahead is showing more of the same temperature wise - mid to late teens. Can't be bad eh?
