Eight dove in the water for the “Big Swim” across the lake.  There were 5 first timers.  Most afternoons in the summer you will see heads bobbing across the lake for anyone brave enough to do the “Big Swim”


The trusty boat spotters staying close to the swimmers in case anyone needed to jump on and to keep other boats away


The Peanut gallery cheering everyone across the lake


Sarah a veteran of many a “Big Swim”, taking it a little slow with her bad knee and cheering on Kate from Ireland who was swimming farther than she ever had before.  Go Kate GO!


We made it!  Now who is swimming back?  4 did make the return trip swimming back and 4 jumped on the boat.  5 new lake swimmers can go home to brag they made it across the lake.  Kate was thrilled to make it but will not be swimming the English Channel when she gets home


Life been a little chaotic lately?  Enjoy these quiet pics taken on Lower Kaubashine this evening.  Beautiful calm night
