We all know that Nicky Marr, the Inverness Courier's open cold-water swimming expert and columnist, loves nothing more than a giggle – but one of our readers really did make her day.

Nicky who wrote about why open water swimming is great for the heart and soul in her weekly column in last week's Inverness Courier was delighted that Bernie had joined her for a swim.

"Thanks to a reader on the The Inverness Courier FB page for this."
