The way that I like to swim is in a tube. I spent hours watching these competitors swim and how do they do it. So smooth and so fast. Those underwater shots show just how graceful they are. I am almost inspired to get in a pool and actually swim. The last time I really swam was when I did a triathlon . It was open water ,Lake Michigan. Because I wanted to keep the shore line in my sight, I did it all side stroke. That is the stroke that I call my country club stroke. You only get one side of your head wet. I did spend countless days practicing for this portion of the triathlon. Since we spent the summer in Michigan at our cottage, which was on a small lake, I would swim across the long way and back with Bob in a row boat beside me so no motor boats ran me down. My best fun in the water was tubing down a portion of the Russian River in California. I still think of that as the most fun. Swimming just isn't me. I'm almost shorter than the shallow end and that is no fun.I can swim, I just choose not to. I don't have fins, I have feet. I'm going to keep them on the ground.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
