Well, I made my seven swims for November! I got through earthquakes, and holiday, and storms, and jellyfish .... but I only just made it through the jellyfish. Today we saw some menacing ones near to me in the water. J's personal paparazzo, along with J (she'd already done her swimming quota for the month), watched me from shore as I dog-paddled in knee-high water around and around in a couple of little circles in front of the steps, with one of the lion's mane jelly-fish drifting closer and closer.
Still ... done!
Thong Man and Bob took the plunge, with J and her personal paparazzo semaphoring directions to them: "Go right! Go left!" How brave can two guys get?
