First (Real) Swim of 2009

Lots of people turned out for the first Sunday ocean swim of the year. We had a much smaller group on New Year's Day - good thing too - the water was too murky for safety so we only swam to the arch and back. It hardly qualified as getting wet.

We stayed in for the full distance this morning. It was another fast and serious swim, but we still managed to see a group of five eagle rays. I also saw a sting ray, which was only the second time I've ever seen one. Manta rays and spotted eagle rays seem to be much more common on Maui, or at least easier to find.
