As he surges up the crest of a wave, this open water swimmer
(clad in black and trailing the leash to his wetsuit zipper)
looks to me like a leviathon pulling whalers on a Nantucket Sleighride!
(I took this photo as I was swimming next to him--just a couple of feet away.
I didn't stop or slow my stroke. After all, I was in a race!)
