The July 4th Ocean Swim that Wasn't

OK, the wind was gusting to around 25mph on both days I was at the beach this the open water swim didn't happen. I had planned to swim across this stretch of Narrgansett Bay over to Hog Island (see the little red roofed house behind the high dive float?) but it wasn't safe for the boat that was to accompany me so we bagged it. Had a nice swim in a calm pond on Monday instead. Much less choppy!! Here are some pics of the waves (and da woofie). Yikes - on the photo above you can see the dock is all wet - the waves were crashing OVER it!!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th... It's time for me to get my head back into it... should be good and ready for Fairlee on Sunday!!! BRING. IT. ON.

Woofie is more of a wader...but she swims a little. I wish she'd actually train with me...I can't even take her on a short run...she sits down and says, "OK, dat's enuff...see you when you get back!!" Lazy woofie. Yes, she is often smiling...
