The FIRST Open Water Swim of 2012 (Daytime): January 1, 2012: West Neck Beach, Huntington NY

If you're going to swim in January at West Neck Beach in the waters of COLD Spring Harbor, then you couldn't have picked a better January day than the first day of this New Year. The sky was a brilliant blue with just the trace of a few puffy white clouds. And the temperature, ahh the air temperature... it was a balmy 50 degrees! Of course, the water temperature was nowhere near that warm!

In any event, seven brave souls of the West Neck Pod ventured forth and conquered both their fears and the cold waters off West Neck Beach. Me? I was happy it was warm enough to comfortably take pictures from the shoreline!
