swim anyone???

IMG_0479We were on our way back from Alki Beach a couple of weeks ago when the weather had just started to turn colder – I think it was about 46 degrees when David took this picture. Then we noticed 2 guys stripping down to their swim trunks on the beach. Figured they were divers and about to put their wetsuits on but no……..they just waded into the water and started swimming!

Pretty wild we thought, maybe they lost a bet 😉 and then look what we saw in yesterday’s Seattle Times!

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
