Indeed it was a dandy day for a swim!  Just about every crew member found a reason to swim a little further this morning with most reaching 3 piers before returning to shore   ...and some nearly going to 3 piers and back twice! 

Perhaps it was the abundant sunshine, warm air temps, pristine blue waters and occasional warm (70+?) pockets of water that motivated the Kru this morning.  For Bubba his motivation may have actually resulted from the schools of fish that were taunting him as they swam circles around him. 

Strangely though, there were a few Kru members that were enticed not to swim longer than usual....but to swim faster.  No names will be mentioned here but for anyone who caught a glimpse of The Big Show's Big Show it's probably not too difficult to figure out the motivation of these Kru members.  ...of course I'm alluding to The Big Show's amazing ability to swim on her back as fast (...if not faster...) than most can swim on their stomach.  While getting dropped by someone swimming on their back may put a frown on your face catching a glimpse of The Big Show's post swim show will surely turn your frown upside down!  :)
