OWS at West Neck Beach: July 1, 2007

It was a little after 7am on Sunday morning, July 1, 2007 and the tide couldn't be any lower. How low was it? Well, all the rocks in the picture above -- including that high group in the middle ground are BELOW water at high tide! That didn't make the swim any shorter, it just made the walk to the water that much more painful.

What a large group! But remember, that there is plenty of room in the water if you want to join us some morning

Coach Bob, bum shoulder and all, kicks his way out after the swim.

Rob and Ken were there as well -- but they are at West Neck Beach more days than not as Rob is getting ready for the 10K Open Water Championship in Huntington Bay in less than two weeks. Ken will be working as Rob's Kayak Guide. FYI, Rob logged a "short" 3.5 mile swim this Sunday morning after doing 6.5 miles yesterday.
