Happy Independence Day

I am always rejuvenated by entering the ocean - which is finally almost warm again. Freedom from gravity has to be one of my favorite things about swimming -- I can fly. No need for wings or sails, just a pair of goggles allowing me to see, and I soar above the ocean floor. The real thing is even better than my flying dreams, where staying aloft is tricky and a struggle. In real life flying through the water is easy, automatic, a joy.
