New Year's Day Madcap Plunge – Been there Dunnet!
9th January 2014
Local members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints celebrated the New Year by taking a plunge into the waves at Dunnet Bay. Most simply ran in with swimsuits, but one fellow wore a full-length Santa suit. One of the younger participants, probably trying to understand why his feet went numb, explained that "the water wasn't too bad -- but the sand on the way back was freezing!"
The group, who clean this beautiful beach each year plan to make this an annual event and since members of the church don't drink, this lapse of judgement can't be blamed on too much alcohol on the brain.
It could only be sheer insanity, Scottish-style!
