Final update-on the 18th we wrapped ourselves in blankets (or wanted to) and motored from Bishops to Woodside Ferry and ... jumped in - oh my .. - oh - the cold!!!!! Strangely a better year in terms of times across the Harbour (perhaps because it was soo cold!!!) The wind and waves didn’t give us a break either so it was quite the swim. So grateful for the gang in the orange suited rescue teams who were there all the way across! Thank you to everyone who supported - kicked the goal this year again! Huge thanks to swim buddy Louise, land guard Tracy, Mary Lou and everyone who supported the United Way ❤️.
Summer 2019 - Here we go again! Year 2 for me. Praying for a quiet windless day on Sept 12th. Join me in raising funds for the United Way to support the great work they do across the Province. My training this year may actually include the lovely NS Duck Toller in the picture below. She won't be doing the swim but she's a great swimmer so what a great training partner!
