A near perfect day on the beach.  Warm and sunny with 73 degree water.   Because of the USAT Nationals, we only had five swimmers as compared to 25 last Saturday.  The good news is that none of the five are triathletes :)

When we arrived mama duck and six ducklings were paddling about between the rock piles.  When I started to swim they followed me for about 50 yards, swimming alongside no more than five feet away.  What were they thinking?
