Last night the whole family went to Bear Lake, we camped out in a tent at a site just off the shoreline.

Mile 6-8 was fantastic. I was feeling strong and kept thinking of what the English Channel is gonna be like. I had lots of variety with today's feeds: Perpetuem, Swiss Rolls, Cereal bars. I discovered a new food item that I was REALLY craving especially during mile 9-10: Chicken Nuggets. Something with protein! I'm gonna get some of those for next time to try.
When we got back to the boat ramp the GPS said, 9.95 miles, so I got Austin out and Jacob and Jonas got in the boat for an additional little bit to get the route in the 10 mile range. We swam from the boat ramp to the next available beach to the south. It was only an additional .65 miles, but enough to get my goal for the day.
The kids had a blast playing in the water and we had a very fun Saturday together as a family and I got in a great swim at the same time! I'm so tired, but I'm already looking forward to next week. I'm planning on starting out at the Utah State Bear Lake Marina on the western side and am planning a legitimate double width crossing. In order to to that however, I'm gonna pull back my yardage a bit this next week, so that I'm not quite so tired and sore.
Total Distance 10.59 miles in 5:43
