Day 7 and beyond
I’m still rocking.
Sunday - a lovely spring day here in Maine, thankfully. Son Finn is up and at my bedside before 6. I’m tired, but he’s smiling and I’ve missed him. We snuggle and he asks me questions about swimming in the ocean. Spend the day moving slowly, reconnecting with friends and family.
Monday - It rains. And rains and rains and rains. I can’t believe I have to put my winter hat on against the raw weather. But before I leave the house, I take a minute to close my eyes and remember what we’ve done. Seventeen swimmers joined us in the last two weeks. Some came to swim hard, some came to build confidence in their abilities in open water, some came simply to celebrate their passion for being in the sea. I think they have all gained something from their experiences, and I am deeply grateful to be a part of their accomplishments.
So bring it, rain. You can’t eclipse my last two weeks in the blue Caribbean, with beautiful sea life and fantastic swims and amazing people who came to soak it all in and added their own passion to the mix.
Yep, I’m still rocking. How did I get so lucky?
Thanks again, to all our SwimVacationers from the last two weeks. Let’s keep in touch and find a way to swim together again.
