A Winter Swim

Brrrrr.... rather him than me! I called out and asked if it was cold and he replied it was wonderful!

Have a great New Year's Eve everyone.

For an update on Mistral and Mama Mia, the Hell Hole dogs who arrived at Pension Milou yesterday - please click on the link.


  1. I do appreciate the man in the water photograph.

    I have no sympathy for people who mistreat animals period.

    I followed the link you suggested.

    I don't like to see it and if I were a god and could hand out punishment those kinds would no longer be with us.

    I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama -- at least I hope so.

    I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

    It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

    And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

    What a world we have and live in. 2009 could be so much better than it will be.

  2. une bonne maniere de finir l'année , mais il faut etre tres courageux ;o)....Bonne année 2009

  3. He doesnt look cold, very much. I sure wouldnt want to do it.

  4. I like swiming in the sea water but not in this season in front to Mentone, brrr!
    Wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year.

  5. LOL, what a brave soul! I couldn't do it!

    Now I'm going to go check on your new family members and see how they are settling in.

    Happy New Year!

  6. Brr....temperatures struggling to get above zero here!

    I hope you don't mind me taking the easy route by copying and pasting this comment, it is by far the easiest method of getting my message to so many CDP photobloggers.
    I am not sure that I can sustain South Shields Daily Photo much longer, it is so difficult to keep finding new material on a daily basis,
    and after more than two years inspiration and motivation are becoming harder to find, so I may become less daily from time to time.
    I hope you can find new hope and inspiration, and that a new start in 2009 brings everything that you desire.
    The CDP photoblogging community has grown massively over the past year and I'd like to thank those who have visited South Shields Daily Photo, especially those who have been kind enough to leave a comment or two.
    Best wishes for 2008
