|David and Evelyn Frantzeskou were the perfect hosts!|
I would definitely recommend them to anyone desiring
to stay in Dover for a crossing. They really cater to swimmers!
And hoist the flag up of those who succeed.
The US flag was flown all week long.
Watching the water at night with just the stars overhead to lighten the landscape made the lights from the boats in the channel really stand out. I felt a connection with the Channel that really made me sad to leave it. I pondered my future and I think I'll go on the record as planning for a swim next summer to do Catalina. Cathi's on board with that and I just need to get the ball rolling on getting my shoulder bursitis looked at and fixed before the year is over.
|Slug or dog poop? Slug!|
Then we drove to Brighton beach and I got in and swam for 30 minutes while the rest of our party enjoyed an ice cream bar watching me swim.
The water felt great! It was 68 degrees and not as clear as Dover, but the sun was shining and the breeze was blowing. It was a great day for a swim.
Then we went out for pizza and now am about to retire for the evening. Tomorrow: Stonehenge and Winchester Cathedral.
Total: @1 mile in 28:34
