Happy New Year!

All fun during the very popular Hornby Island Polar Bear Swim

I am not a natural in the water.  As a kid I never learned to swim and once I nearly drown.  All the same, the waters around Hornby are so enticing that I have completely fallen under its spell and I welcome every chance to get in.  My friend swims in the ocean everyday, an inspiring ritual she started this  fall.  And while I am not as committed, my New Year's dip in the pristine oh-so-clear-you-can-see-the-bottom Hornby water has convinced me waiting until the summer to swim again is too long a delay for the joy it brings.
