I started my day with a call to my family, it felt so good to hear their voices. This is what I miss the most.
I spent most of my day thinking about them while swimming. I relived simple moments we had together, like a Saturday morning and thought about what we would do when I will be back home. One thing is sure, no matter what we will do, being with them is most important.
I had a good day swimming, Ty and Maria were on the dinghy.
I started a few days ago to take fewer breaks and swim more hours at a time. Today I took two breaks; I swam three hours before taking my first break and another four hours before taking my second, then I swam two more hours for a total of nine hours swim today.
I had waves coming from my right that often took my right arm out of its axis of rotation and throw me off balance. I had to constantly readjust my position and by the end of the day, I had some abrasion under my right arm pit.
I felt the sting inflicted by the mix of salt water and urine on my raw flesh. I hope it will have the time to heal a little bit over night…
