Amazing Swim Hats

30 Apr

Words and photos from our lovely neighbour:-   “Perfect morning for the inaugural outing of the Wild Swim Hats – 8.00am, calm sea, light winds, seventeen elated swimmers from the Gorran Haven Coldwater Crew, a film crew in wetsuits, ditto Steve Tanner taking photos, me and Meier Williams, clutching each other, weeping with joy, relief and grief (we both have people we would have LOVED to have shared this moment with). But mostly just gloriously happy to be standing on the edge of the shore witnessing this crazy thing…….”

Ready to swim

    Can’t even imagine the time and ingenuity that went into making those amazing hats.

    The 11th Commandment:
    STOP and BE SILLY at least once a day!

    And the lord sayeth: It is good!

    And I obeyed. 😉

      Exactly! All part of the pop-up art happening around St Austell, Mevagissey and groan. Wish all those events could happen in our part of Cornwall! 🙂
