[DAY 90] Another fantastic swim day

Another fantastic swim day. Since we have move our clock by one hour, not only do I get an extra hour of sun light at the end of the day but I also wake up with amazing sun rises.

I swam for 9 hours and 20 minutes, the most I ever swam since our departure from Choshi. At the end of the day what hurt the most was my lymph node under my right arm. The one under my left arm has been back to normal since yesterday. The constant rub of my wetsuit each time I rotate my arm, creates a small friction against it and when it gets repeated 1,000’s times, it becomes very sensitive at the end of the day.

I only saw a school of fish during the day, other than that, I didn’t encountered much. It seems like George, our shark, got tired of us.

The end of the day finished by an under water light show. Bioluminescent planktons rose to the surface. They looked like one to two centimeters wide spider web carrying tiny LED light on their structure. Their color ranged from light to dark blue going into the purple. They were slowly passing below me, it was a parade of light.
