    Ocean swim

    First time swimming more than a few yards in the ocean. Did about a half mile off the beach in Jamaica. Windy day, so the swells forced me to lift my head way out of the water, plus I could only breath on the shore side.

    I'm an Adirondack lake guy, can't say I like ocean swimming. Sinuses filled with salt is very uncomfortable.

    Hi Sumorunner, the link didn't work for me.

    But I too just did a 1 mile beach swim recently. We were definitely against the current and the swells were so high, I could barely see the buoys and didn't see anybody around me. I had to swim with my head up till I was able to see whats upfront. Did not like it at all. The kicking and shoving from the triathletes didn't help either. At some point, I swear someone tried to swim on top of me. I've decided to "retire" from open water swimming (even though it was only my 2nd). I'm sticking to the pool, where I am either looking at the wonderful black line or colorful flags, can actually see my arms and have lane lines that keep the crazies in line.

    Sorry, that link was to my wife's videos. Must not be marked public. Here it is again.
