Pippi, always willing to lend a hand, carried the Warlocks back pack and even gleefully lent her shirt when the Warlock needed a goggle wash. He switched to the larger goggles for better sighting, but quickly discovered that it was pointless considering the water was so murky he could barely see ten inches in front of his face. During the swim he swam over people and had people swim over him. Apparently it was even scarier than he thought it would be. Panic did set in, but he made it, and finished the swim in the middle of the pack. My husband is not afraid of doing hard things.
|Gleeful, oh yes....|
|While the mossy water was a pain to swim in, when combined with a stick, it provided at least 30 minutes of amusement for children who don't like to spectate triathlons much.|
|Pippi found that these perching ducks enjoyed being stroked on the back. She told me about it. I didn't see her. Hand sanitizer anyone?|
|The awesome orange disposable chip timer.|
|The children enjoyed watching the warm-up swim. I had to drag them away from the lake to the finish line..|
|And they will spectate with snacks.|
|Look at them! All lined up, three in a row, they look like something out of a story book.|
