is well-known to any student of American literature:
“I went to the woods
because I wished to live deliberately..."
― Henry David Thoreau,
Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
But it is equally well-known to triathletes
and other open water swimmers north and west of Boston.
A glacial bowl filled with blue water!
A mecca for athletes who wish to swim under the sky!
On June 15, 2014, the Wheelworks Multisport TriathlonTeam
gathered at Walden to swim in the cool blue.
I joined them,
Swam with them.
And took some photos as I swam!
(Yes, I was swimming as I took these photos.
I did not stop or slow my stroke. After all--
I was swimming with the others, "inside the pack"!)
for inviting me to join you!
