I’ve been having a blast on this journey of Cold Water Swimming this last year and the journey continues.
I love it!
In April I decided to get up and swim at dawn every day in memory of our son Graham whose birthday was in April.
Not only did I do that but I decided to swim under that month’s full moon.
That was the Pink Full Moon and that was so special to me that I had the picture tattooed on my arm.
I’ve had so much fun swimming at dawn taking videos and pictures of it for a local photography group I’m in, that I’ve continued to date.
I’ve also enjoyed swimming under five different full moons.
That picture was the Harvest Full Moon last Friday night. I had a bat fly over and a duck swimming beside me. It was special!
The picture was taken at Colpoy’s Bay Dock on the Bruce Peninsula by my husband Tony who was in his canoe.
What I’ve found is, you are never too old to try something new.
This Cold Water Swimming has changed my life, no question!
