A longer swim

Roo, Allana, and I swam a bit longer today, working on figuring out how long we can comfortably swim in water at that temperature… I think our consensus is in the region of thirty to forty minutes without any real training or conditioning. We walked out as far as we could to see where the channel is cut (since I think a decent rule is to stay in water that's “walking height” so if there's a problem others can help you out easily even if they're not confident swimmers).

Come join us at noon and midnight (police permission pending for the night swim) on the 21st (Solstice, and a new moon) for our next swim! That's Thursday by the way. Oh, and I think the news are coming, so if you have something to promote, wear the t-shirt. And trust me, it's a lot more fun than our faces make it look in that last photo! www.winterswim.com

Oh! And I met with a really talented friend of Blair's today who's going to carve a skull with my tattoo on it to fit on the top of my cane. I was going to make a few for other friends with canes, so drop me a line if you're interested… If it turns out nicely I'll commission a BME belt buckle from him — I've wanted to do a proper 3D buckle for a while.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
