Whatcha doin' in Narita? Coming home?

You need to get your tanned self out to cold waters--otherwise you'll go soft on us....:naughty

Great story; I can relate...long distance swimming is blissful. Didn't want to get out of the water yesterday......

Thanks Pete!

Yup. I'm back in Edmonton, looking for work here and out in your area too. It's good to be home, where it's cold and clean :)

Wow great story Pete, hats off to you and Eric! Now I'm inspired to do some longer swims here in Georgian Bay. Looking forward as well to future instalments!

Georgian Bay

Where do you dive on Georgian Bay? I grew up there, near the small town of Lafontaine (near Midland) with a view of Collingwood in the distance. Too shallow for freediving but I sure love windsurfing on the Bay.

How's the club in Toronto?

Hey Pete,
Tobermory and down to Owen Sound. Just moved to Toronto from Owen Sound... :( Oh well! Still get up there alot fortunately! Love the clear water on the north shore of the Bruce Penn, not much to see tho as Im sure you know! Unless you count rocks! :) love the wrecks too.

I've just joined the club in Toronto here, haven't met anyone yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

Just a few nice wrecks up there!;)

Many of them are pretty shallow too.

This oneThe City of Cleavland is in less than 35' of water. Parts of it break the surface and she is a couple of hundred feet long. THere are lots of htings to look at if your into wrecks.
