Flippin' gorgeous swim

Posted by anne on April 16, 2011, 4:53 pm

Had a wondrous swim out the the Rocks again. This time the waves were big and rolling. The sets were uneven, but nice and wide. Was able to ride up the front side and down the back side. Avg height: 3 feet, some going to 4 feet.

The Rocks were covered with seabirds. About 15-20 flew out over me and hovered, all at the same time as I rose and fell in the big waves near the Rocks.

The water was clearer so on my return, I was able to swim about a meter below the surface and look upwards to the surface. Tiny air bubbles glistened on the surface. Sun rays reached down to my depth and sprinkled my outstretched arms like glistening jewels.

Malaguas (jellyfish) appeared once in a while and I'd approach them closely and dance with them inches from me, lifting my legs all around them-- above and under their pulsing bodies. They are a wonder to behold.

Water temp at shore: 81F At the Rocks: 80F Tibia.

If anyone wants to swim out with me, just email...
