Friday Swim

I don't care what everyone says about it. I LOVE swimming in the lake, by myself, while the sun comes up.

I can't think of a more peaceful place to be. Well, maybe still being asleep in bed would be better, but the lake at sunrise is a very close second!

It was about 5:10 when I got to the lake this morning. We had company at the house last night so I got to bed a couple of hours later than usual. First light had broken already, but the moon was still huge and bright in the sky. I got into the water and, I just didn't fell like doing that trek to the other end again. The water felt a bit warmer than it did a couple of days ago. I guess it doesn't take long to warm up with a bit of sun on it.

I swam over to the far buoy, then headed over to Willems father-in-laws place. I contemplated moving the boat on them, but then thought better of it. I swam up a bit further and checked out the airplane. One day I've got to get a ride on one of those and land on the lake. I'd really like to see how big, or small, swimmers look from a landing plane.

I headed across to the other side of the lake, then back out to the middle and back to the canoe club where I'd started.

It was kind of fun just shooting from here to there and back as opposed to just the old out and back that I always do. I was out of the water in just under an hour, so I guess I got in the time that I was scheduled to do at the pool.

Next stop - Muskoka. I'm looking forward to seeing how I do there this year.
