Went for a dip at Blackrock this evening. As expected it's a different vibe out there nowadays.
I'm not on here to moan about the dry-robe newbies. IMO everybody is welcome, nobody owns nature.
That said, there is a wide range of people who swim in Blackrock daily, young, old etc
For most people winter swimming is about connecting with nature, catching up with friends, health benefits etc,
This evening some ladies brought a boombox which was blasting music unbelievably loud. This thing had blue flashing lights, the music was pop hip hop dance full on party nightclub type stuff. Honestly, the volume levels were so high, I couldn't talk to the person with me. We were standing approximately 10 metres away from the boombox.
Again, I've no issue with lots of people taking up winter swimming. Maybe if your reading this keep in mind, other people swim there too.

Is it a myth that the water's warmer (or should that be less cold) in winter?
