This weekend we headed to the Connecticut River once again for an open water swim. We were very fortunate to be accompanied by our friend and former teammate Christine in her kayak. Around 8:30am we reached the marina and set out for a swim. The weather was beautiful and the water had warmed up a lot since our six-hour swim in May. Actually, it felt like we were swimming in a bathtub. The current was also much weaker than we had experienced on Memorial Day weekend, which made for a nice leisurely swim upstream. We could see the bottom of the river and even hit the bottom a few times.
After our swim we took a quick detour to the bridge pillar tagged by Smith Crew. We had a great time swimming and were excited to spend time with Christine! We even ran into Kim and his family water skiing on the beautiful Sunday morning. We are heading back to the river this weekend for a swim with Qing and Anna.
