This was one of the very few boats I spotted on Cold Spring Harbor and it really is a lot farther away from the swimmers than it looks in this photo -- telephoto lens!
In the photo above, the second group of swimmers are putting on their wetsuits and getting ready to pose for the camera below. No political statement was intended by posing in front of the "No Lifeguard On Duty" sign. In truth. when you swim with the West Neck Pod, its hard NOT to be swimming with numerous lifeguards, ex-lifeguards, competitive swimmers etc.
Joye gives me a final wave... or, is she just fixing her goggles? No matter, an Open Water Swim with the sun shinning and the waters of Cold Spring Harbor as smooth as glass is a GREAT way to start Memorial Day 2010!
