Big First Swim

Wow! What a huge turnout for our first Sunday swim of the year. Two swim teams showed up at the beach, one from New York and one from Vancouver. I was amazed that these kids spend so very much time in the water and yet for many of them it was the first time swimming in open water. There was a lot of trepidation about sharks, so it was a good thing that Bruce took the morning off. They were excited to see sea turtles. The eel we saw was unusual in that it stood its ground instead of running away (click on the photo to see the large version).

Sometimes visiting kids are not nearly as adventurous as my swimming friends, but these kids were lined up to jump from the jumping off rock.
