Mystery Swimmers 1 and 2 heading out late
It was another magic morning of swimming. There was a wee bit of dissension in the ranks, and thus the majority swam north, and Dragonfly, Pool Noodle, and I swam south.
I'm sure the northbound swimmers had their own adventures, but I'm writing the blog.
We sliced thru the water and regrouped to admire Love Rock. Then to sewerpipe. (It's consistently smelly by sewerpipe, but not sewer smell, more like diesel.) It still felt too soon to turn back, so we went on to two wooden staircases, each ending abruptly in the middle of the bluff, and finally, THE Staircase staircase, the metal one. That one is now hanging mostly horizontal on the rocks. Crazy.
We started back. On days like today, with incredible clarity and sunshine ripples on the bottom, it feels like I'm peering into a peaceful watery room, the edges of which are just beyond my line of vision.
