Swim Update

21 miles for the week.  Now I am a bit sore.

Today's swim was a 6.3 mile (10 km) adventure in Lake Del Valle which took me 3.5 hours.  That is about 11,000 yards, which is 2,000 yards more than I have done before.  Since I have been doing 5,200 yards per day in the morning, this is 37,000 yards for the week, which is the same as the cross Lake Tahoe swim.  With two months to train, the Tahoe swim certainly looks feasible, but it is still a lot of work.

Polite Notice

All of the politeness here is driving me nuts.  Everywhere I go there are signs declaring polite this or polite that.  Even the GPS gives a "please" before demanding you make a particular turn.  Now I am longing to get back to the land of the rude.

The following pictures include some polite geese, polite rowers, and a polite Thames river flowing through the town of Reading.

Hanging Out With The Dead

I finally arrived, but am too tired to post much.
