Long swim!

The Little Red Lighthouse swim was successfully completed, and it was truly a lovely day for a swim, though fairly brisk afterwards. No time to write more now - the tidal assist was variable, but not nearly as strong as expected, I was certainly in the water closer to three hours than two! - but it is hard to explain how much it is almost the best thing in the world to be swimming right out there in the middle of a huge river looking up at the bluffs of Upper Manhattan on your right-hand side...

Glad it went well! Can't imagine swimming for nearly 3 hours but sounds like some awesome scenery.
