Saturday morning, took youngest daughter, (who on Wed will be off to college making for her mother's and I first day of empty nest) to local lake, where we took in a leisurely 1.75 mile swim, with mom on shore. At the turn around point, we treaded water, laughed, she yelled at me for getting to far into the lake cause we did not have boat escort, I argued that I hadnt (which I think maybe I did) told her I would race her back, grabbed her ankle as she went by, just drafting you know...... went home took shower, and out for a great breakfast with her and her mother....thats why I swim, dont care what kind of suit, aint fast enough, just old slow and steady....planning on these swims for a long time. :)

Enjoyment in the open water is what it is about. 77 of us swam a 10 K in Horsetooth Res, near Fort Collins, Colorado and what most of us will remember is how the wind came up, then the waves and how the waves pushed us towards the end. It was a great day, sun, sand, wind and waves.
