Christmas swim today! It’s an annual fundraiser run by COPE Galway, a local homeless assistance charity. The diving board area was crammed with people, some wearing their warmest winter coats and hats, some wearing nothing but a swimsuit. Thank goodness the fierce winds and hail had finally cleared off or it could have been a tragedy! But instead it was a lot of fun. We’ll be sure to get there earlier next year and with plenty of coin in our pockets for the buckets.
