Cold Water Swim

Rate this Entry
Darkness greets us as we shiver on the edge of the deck.

The water is deep blue, placid and glassy. It looks cold and uncaring.

Lane lines, red and white, parallel the black line markers under water and seem to beckon.

The whistle blows and in one swift leap, the water embraces us, chills us and finally soothes us as our minds turn inward.

Swirls of steam rise into the dark morning sky.

    Up here much closer to Canada, the water is thickening with cold - feels much heavier - and it's a huge effort to get in for any amount of time. Also dark (the sky).

    I've just heard about the hot springs in NM. Are they for real? Can one paddle about in them?

    Hot springs are real! Google "Truth or Consequences"

    They are way too hot to swim in. But floating feels great and turns me into mush!
