Today I introduced one of my sisters to the joy of open water swimming. Since I bought a new Xterra suit with the Vineman coupon code, I had my old one for her to use and it fit her perfectly!
She even broke out some butterfly in the lake!
My dad, in the meantime, tried to blend into the buoys

Me and my sister
At 13-almost-14, she did great in her first OW swim, zipping past all of us and cruising along in the lake. A few more practices and she’ll be ready to race the Catfish Swim with me in September.
The beardies and I are doing an agility trial in Carmel all weekend. Knowing that I’m close to tapering, I figured I could fit in a trial with my training. This is a new venue, on a golf course and supposed to be really nice, so I am looking forward to it. Given the close proximity to the Central Coast, the weather should be relatively cool too. Hopefully we will have some nice reports from the weekend!
That's great your sister is not afraid of OW swimming, so great of you to help her. Have fun in Carmel with your doggies! I love that area, having done a trail race last October. The weather is perfect... enjoy the break from tri and your taper.
Your sister is so cute. and what was this i heard about doing fly? She could do fly and whop on all of us at a tri. That would be too cool!
Family open water swim session! Sounds perfect.
I'm fairly amazed you actually got a picture of that fish...impressive.
These pictures are so much fun --- what kind of (underwater) camera do you have ? Have a great time in Carmel w the pups !
I love some underwater pix! How fun. Yep, sounds like OWS is made for her. Even if tri isn't her thing, lots of OWS races around...
Sooo awesome that your sister can join you on open water swims too. I once saw a woman doing butterfly in open water in San Diego -- unreal!!
