|Seriously, is there anything more beautiful to be looking at while swimming?|
We got out of the marina cove and into the GSL. We decided to head NW for an hour and 1/2 then just turn around and come back. We had about a 1/2 knot push behind us which was nice. After the first few minutes of swimming, Kim was slowing down quite a bit sporadically. She said that the some of the short cold currents we were going through were really bothering her. She pushed on and after the first hour, we decided to head east against the current so our swim back to the marina wouldn't be as bad. It was pretty choppy and I could definitely feel that I had to swim harder to move.
|Doin' some fly!|
|Isn't that nice! Karen was struggling so Kim helped push her along. hehe|
|Hour 2 of her "getting in"!|
|Back floating Karen|
Once Karen was ready, she wanted to HONESTLY say she has swam in the GSL. She had a suit on and got in....it took FOREVER....but she eventually got in. She did a back float then a short doggie paddle swim about 10 feet. It counts! I then talked her into putting a mouth full of GSL water and immediately spitting it out. She reacted like most people do. "THAT'S DISGUSTING! How do you swim in this for so long"?
Ahhh, the GSL. She ain't much to look at and she smells a bit, but she's my baby!
Total today was 5.2 OW
