|Watching the sun come up while swimming is a real treat.|
Went back to the cottage, got showered up, and changed and applied aloe, but its still an issue. An exercise in mental toughness!
Distance in the morning: 7 miles in 4:05 in 73°f.
I picked up some anti itch spray and that stuff rocks. Definitely going for a swim later this afternoon. I just got back from taking Jamie to pick up some ice. Man I'm on top of the world!
I saw Lynn round a buoy and I caught up with her cause she was doing backstroke and looked back at me. She was trying to look around me and see her Wilson. She stopped and had a concerned look on her face. I got a sick knot in my stomach and said, "Is this your Wilson". She said, "No my Wilson has a yellow stripe, not this red and blue" I explained what had happened and where I looked and we put our swim aside to perform a search and rescue. I looked for about an hour overall, and half of the entire shoreline of the lake. He was gone. I did two more laps to get a total of 4 (and some including the search and rescue shoreline swimming).
I was ticked cause I wanted to get 5 laps and only got 4. Anyway I'll have to get up early again tomorrow and get in a good morning swim.
Total for the day: 12.7 miles (11 laps )
I am so tired! I'm going to bed early so I can have a comparable swim tomorrow.
