The Christmas Eve Swim - Prince Albert and Woolite, the Sheep


Readers of Menton Daily Photo will have met Woolite, the sheep before. She is the mascot of Les Foulées Roquebrunoises and runs with the group and swims in the sea - always with her proud owner, Philippe Mazza. Thankyou, Philippe (who you see in the smaller pic) for both photographs.

Taken just before the 4th Bain de Noël on Christms Eve at Larvotto Beach, you see Prince Albert in the centre of the photograph, wearing sunglasses and green shorts under his Father Christmas robe. The swim was in aid of TATSA (Thai After Tsunami Schooling Aid). Woolite was proud to swim in the sea in such exalted company.

This was reported live on television - to view the video, to see everyone including Prince Albert, swimming in the sea and to hear the Prince speak, click on the link.

Great photo and I love the video. I just keep thinking that the water must have been cold but, I didn't see anyone shivering.

Did you go in for a dip then Jilly? Looks like Woolite has been sponsored by Nike. Product placement seems to get everywhere.

Looove those santa outfits how mah-velous and looks like the mah-velous weather is in Monaco. no wonder everyone likes to go there. About that product placement that's what we thought too!!! However, they seemed to all be having sucha a good time and for such a tremendously good cause. Happy holidays to all in and out of balmy Monaco!!!

I'm trying to think of a joke about wool shrinking but can't come up with anything good. :-) What a darling sheep!
