The water is inky black,
the sun not yet over the horizon
there’s a constant slapping sound of the waves
reminding you of the ocean wilds
beyond the reach of your cold outstretched arms
(The Sunrise Swimmers is scheduled for February 2018)
Winter solstice sunrise swim.
An early morning, when you question your sanity briefly, while taking off your two jackets, looped woollen scarf and gloves.
To submerge your exposed white body in water that threatens to take your entire breath away.
Hold tight you got this one.
Exhale and in.
(And of course it was worth it. Every. Single. Time.)
For the fellow sea lovers out there. Take a peek at this truly beautiful little film. Divine.
