Default The Loony Dook

This happens every new years day in North Queensferry north of Edinburgh .
It's a charity event where crazy people dress in crazy costumes and enter the cold waters of The Firth Of Forth . Thought I'd include a few photos incase anyone wants to have a go next year
Oh today was a rather warm 4 degrees

Well, at least it was above freezing (assuming you mean 4C and not 4F). Crazy does seem to adequately describe the crowd. And yes, the last picture left me somewhat speechless - that guy is really crazy. At least he didn't have a heavy costume to dry off when he got out of the water, there's something to be said for that, I guess.

The costumes aren't so bad - well, except that last guy - but getting in that water is absolutely crazy. It hasn't gotten above 25 F here today and I didn't even want to go outside, let alone in water.
