Advent, Day 6: Ocean Swimming

Dear readers,
 The Maine for an adventure a day, each day of this advent season — big or small, by land or sea, with friends or solo, in image or word, exuberant or contemplative, real or conceptual. We live in a state of wonder, its wide open spaces anticipating our
hope and joy.

It was a great summer for swimming in Maine. Warm temperatures lasted well into September and, even now that both the air and the water have chilled, I can still feel the play of light and color on the waters of Penobscot Bay. In the winter I swim in paint.
