What a pleasure to sit on the shore of Baltic Sea on hot summer days. The wind from the sea is pleasantly refreshing and cools the air warmed by the sun.
A lot of people gather on the beach, but only some dare to dive into the water – it’s cold! And when they come out the water, are trembling from the cold. They try to get their whole body into the sun, warming under its rays fanned by the light wind.
The biggest devotees of Baltic swimming are boys from five to fifty years old. The littlest of them, when they see me, usually without any insecurity loudly ask their parents, grandmothers and grandfathers “Hey, what’s he drawing there?!! What’s he drawing!?”
