An adventure to see if I could in fact swim to that island across the channel we’d been looking at for two and a half weeks. I’m nowhere near as fit as I was in my swim team days, but it doesn’t look too far and the channel’s about as calm as the ocean gets.
Long story short, I made it! I had to flop over and float on my back twice or thrice, but I swam the roughly 2 km without needing to be fished out or towed by the kayak. The prize at the end was a dish of fried rice under the shelter Colin constructed with his poncho and some paracord.
Two days later we went on another adventure, renting a scooter and exploring a bit more of this little island. Zoom zoom.
