This morning I headed to the pool. A gorgeous morning. Here is my view entering the park:
Sorry the clarity is crap, but that's my cell phone (I'm due for my "new every two," just can't decide...so many phones, so little time). I wore my wetsuit in the pool, which was really crowded this morning. I just decided to practice my sighting. It was laughable. There were no real lanes set up so people were swimming all over the place, although trying to swim a straight line. It was like the blind leading the blind. I had a couple of tangles with the lane lines as well (what is that strangling me?! Is it a jelly? Oh wait, this is the pool). Quite embarrassing. All in all it was a good swim.
Yesterday out on Long Island a 26 ft. Basking Shark washed up on shore. Apparently, they only eat plankton and small fish. However, they are the largest fish, just after the Whale Shark swimming the ocean (Whales are mammals people!).
Still, if I saw this think swimming near me in the water, I would freak out. Poor thing.
