When I got out to the marina opening, I noticed Kate walking down the rocks to get back into the water. She joined me and we swam out to the first buoy together. I was swimming REAL easy and quickly learned that I can't do a full long pull yet. When I extend my arm before the "catch" it pulls on my stomach too much. I just had to shorten my stroke by a few inches and that helped. I felt completely out of whack out there. My breathing was off, my stroke was a mess, I kept getting confused on where I was, but I was LOVING the fact that I was out there.
When I got to the first buoy, the others were gone and so Kate and I just hung out talking. The water temp where we were read around 62-63. It was much colder when you went more vertical. We just hung out talking for awhile. Soon Josh and Sue joined us and we just hung out talking more.
Josh and I eventually followed the two ladies in but we swam heads up breast the whole time and chatted our way in. Extremely easy swim. I might try for some actual short distances with lots of rest on Saturday but we'll see.

I'll give myself 1/4 mile "swam" today. 90% of what I did was mainly wading and talking. It was just nice to be out there.
