How to enjoy Summer that feels like winter

The effort these people go to, to enjoy the summer, despite the winter aspects is unbelievable.

Summer ice cream is a serious business here. You wait in a queue for 30 minutes to order yourself a fresh vanilla waffle cone.

I saw a man in Aberdeen walking in rainy 10ºC weather, only in a t-shirt and shorts, satisfyingly eating his waffle cone and choc top.

But the most serious attempt I saw was in Belfast, when over 200 people jumped in the water to complete a triathlon.

It was 12ºC out of the water.

Cray cray.

Good on them for trying.

  1. Hi Jess this was an interesting story. They must be mad but then we are Australians. I can’t imagine how cold that water must have been. xxxooo mum
