Santa Barbara Channel - 8.10.2007
Swim in the Santa Barbara Channel, Aug. 10, 2007. The disturbance in the middle of the photo is a seal and sea lion who came to play. It was a gloomy, foggy day, the water was cold and I was miserable for the entire swim.

Strait of Gibralter swim, August 2008.
Morocco is beyond the container ship. These were very typical conditions for the Strait, lots of up and down swimming.
