New year's Dive & first finish...

Yes, that time of the Year again..we're crazy people running into freezing cold water...although it is quite unusually warm compare to previous years, sea water temperature is about 9 degrees as it hasn't been cold recently. No winds and sunny but the current is strong so still quite dangerous running into the cold cold water. It is the first time i noticed guards standing by at the water as there were lots of small kids joined for the event. Kees isn't in the group as he is away for his job so just me and kids and a friend of our daughter. Kind of chaotisch day as i've lost my Iphone at the beach car park. We were so in a hurry to park and ran of for the beach and noticed it late that phone isn't in my pocket. Not sure where it fell off either in the car or on the way to the beach... can't get back to the car park as it was time to run for the dive at the sea. Returning back to the car, NO iphone...ohh I cannot describe how i feel then ...thinking of all the pictures which i haven't transfered to the pc for the whole year of 2015. At mid-afternoon i called the restaurant at the beach if somebody brought an Iphone to there area but she said none...half an hour later she called back that my Iphone is in...i am truly glad of the finder to hand it back, i sure felt so lucky...that there's still honest people around. To celebrate and because i haven't had the mood for cooking we went out for dinner. Back at home started a new piece, a freebie i've seen on Pinterest. Finished stitching it today...don't know yet how to finish it off so it will have to wait. Wishing everyone a great year ahead!

I thought of you the other day when I read in the newspaper about people diving and swimming in a lake somewhere here in Germany on the New Year's Day. And here you are with your pictures :) I always admire you and these other people for being so brave!!
A lovely little stitched piece.
