Picture 1: Before the swim. We look ready and excited for another Cove experience. The water was warm (probably 70+ F) and calm.
Above: The dynamic trio (Anders, me, and Chris) ready for another swim in the cove on a perfect Saturday morning. They probably feel relieved that I am in the picture; walrus always make others look slim and trim.
Photo 2: A rather unflattering photo of yours truly getting ready to plunge in the water. For the first time in my life, I made Chris look small. Too funny.
Notice how calm the water is today? Another nice day of frolicking with the seals - both human (divers who want to act like them) and pinniped (who are actually them). This walrus fit right in with the latter.
Photo 3: All smiles before with my San Diego crew. These three have been great. Missing in these photos is Tasha (Anders wife) who has cooked for us and made us feel completely welcome the entire time here. Thanks Tasha. I'll get a picture of you in the blog soon....I promise.
And finally, Photo 4: Bryn captured the Cove perfectly with this shot. It really was that gorgeous out this morning.
Anders and I ran around town today getting snacks and gear for the swim. This afternoon looks like a good opportunity to be lazy. Gotta rest up for the big evening swim on Monday. I'm so psyched, I can hardly contain myself. Ever feel that way? Yeah, me too; it sure feels good.
OK, off for a nap now. Thanks for following. I plan to post tomorrow and Monday before the swim with actual swim details. Tomorrow morning, we get back in the Cove for one more hour+ swim - wrapping up my warm-up/taper swims. The next few posts will give you all some idea about my swim plan (i.e., when I want to feed, how fast my arm turnover is when I feel good, why these things are important, etc). Stay tuned. I hope you all have as enjoyable days as I am experiencing. Cheerio...
