Interesting...I got out for my first open water distance swim today. I don't think I've seen water like that in...oh...20? 30 years? In the past, swimming laps happened in a pool.

And I didn't make it all that far...somewhere between 500 and 700 meters I think--so I expect I'm really going to feel it in the arms this weekend!

The dives in the Atlantic off the North Carolina coast to the USS Benson and U-85 (again back in the 80's) were certainly in open water, but I think it's a little different when one has a weight belt and tanks.

Anyway, I got to meet a few more members of the local tri club so that was good. And the water was *warm*--no wetsuit needed for *this* practice. I look forward to getting out there again soon.
