This morning I went out and looked across the Channel. Cathi and I met an Irish swimmer, Colin who is scheduled to swim early tomorrow morning. We looked out and saw France from Varne Ridge. It was beautiful. I counted 9 freighters out there in the channel. It was a total dream.

Varne-Ridge. Beautiful morning!
The water was relatively flat with only a slight breeze. As we waded in I was very surprised how warm it was. I took a temp on my way back with my watch and it read 64f. After the first lap (35 minutes), I went for another.

Having a great time! It is like a dream being here. I've envisioned this moment for a long time and it is fulfilling all my expectations.
Weather looks fairly good for Thursday.
