Open Water Swim: Crescent Beach, Huntington Bay, NY, July 3, 2010

You can check out the "still" picture above or go to the video below! Either way, the Open Water Swimming was delightful this July 4th Weekend!

Don't forget that you should also be able to "click" on any still picture to make it a little bit bigger -- sorry, "bigger" is the best we can do... we can't actually computerize the feel of the water!

Anybody up for harvesting some fresh seaweed?

The video below will give you a 360 degree view of the waters off Crescent Beach!

Bob has discovered the secret of taking your wetsuit off while still in the water. It really is a bit easier than doing it on dry land.

Not that Joy looks ready to get out anytime soon!

The Pod gathers, talking about the morning's swim and waiting for the last few swimmers to finally decide that they've had enough for this Saturday morning.

"If it weren't for all that pesky boat traffic, I'd like to swim to Sand City!"

"Look... I'm not sure that they know where the beach is!"

  1. Awesome pictures and video, Mike -- and great commentary as well! I didn't even notice the board-cam out there! It's so cool to be able to see the water from swimmer's eye-level! See you tomorrow?
