Today it was really warm out so I decided it was time to go for a swim in the river. The weather has been so miserable the past month that we hadn't been for a dip yet! So I put on my spiffy speedo and headed out to the beach. This is the first time I'd worn the suit anywhere other than the pool and the back was a little more revealing than my suit from last year.
The water was freezing at first but once I got used to it I was fine. Rainor and I had a race across the river. He won, of course. I just can't swim as fast as he can... by then the temperature of the water was getting to me, so I got out and went to read on my towel on the beach. I was so into the Terry Pratchett novel I was reading that I lost track of time and forgot to roll over onto my back after awhile.
I now have the most interesting/painful/hilarious sunburn. Rainor insisted on taking a picture cause he thought it was terribly funny. I WON'T be posting it here. I also am going to avoid wearing clothes for the next couple days... Oh the trials of being white.
