Boxing Day Dip

It’s that time of year when normally sane people run into the freezing cold North Sea during the annual Boxing Day dip. In fairness though many do it for charity, others just for a laugh but you can always grab a couple of pictures while you watch them from the warmth of your heavy jacket, scarf, gloves and hat!

More winter madness will ensue during the New Year’s Day dip I imagine so watch this space for more soon.

A woman dressed as Santa makes her way up the beach after taking the plunge.


A group of friends make there way tentatively into the cold water.


A youth decides there is only one way to do it!


Friends and family enjoy a walk along the beach between Saltburn and Marske.
