It was a clear day with the right swimming conditions, the waves were coming somewhat from behind me with little wind.
Ty and Lauren were in the RHIB and Lauren took with her, her swimming gear. She asked me earlier if she could join me in the water. I am always looking for ways to rupture the monotony of my task, so having another person swim beside me would be great.
After few hours into the swim, the clouds started to move in and it started to rain soon after that. The waves were growing and cresting at times, this started to be a risk factor for the RHIB. Fortunately, it never got too windy and the swells flattened.
Soon after I finished my sixth hour, Lauren joined me. She set up a faster pace than mine but I decided to stretch as much as possible and kick a little faster to keep up with her.
She spotted a beautiful jellyfish with a wide fuzzy orange disk and clear tentacles. It was more than three feet long. I had been filling some sting on my face from time to time but up until now hadn’t seen any jellyfish.
In the last half an hour, Lauren took a waterproof camera with her and I saw her few times gliding below me taking shots.
Thank you for joining me in the water!
