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.
Good on them for trying.
