Wetsuit, for swimming

I like to swim in open waters. In Europe I did it mostly in seas or lakes, and here in California I risk to go into the Ocean. 

My 10-years older cousin and his friend had thrown me into deeper waters in a warm see the Summer I just turned 5, I made it back and loved swimming ever since, especially the wild type: outdoors. I used to swim through my childhood and youth in Summers, during two-three months daily, mainly in two seas and two rivers. I was born next to one of the rivers, and lived closed to another.

On the Black Sea I used to swim straight into the depth of it, away from the shore, and challenged myself to get back after I already was tired. The feeling to be back is unforgetful. 

I swim for fun, medium or long distance. 

Today, I'd like to share with you my most favorite routes in San Diego area - they are beautiful, in this places it is relatively easy to get in deeper waters crossing the surf that can be just crushing you down sometimes, and there are not so many disturbances.

Swimming in the Pacific Ocean 3.5K

Today I did one of my longest swims in open waters: over 3.5 km (3.5K), not counting curves, waves, zigzag swimming to avoid kelp, kayakers, fishermen, birds, and even one big seal.

This is my 3rd consecutive day swimming in the ocean, ~ 2 km (2K), ~ 2.7 km (2.7K) in two previous days, plus brisk walks up and down the hills (~ 110 m slope) 5 km (5K), 7 km (7K), and 10km (10K) today. Earlier this Summer I swam 3-4 times a week, but not regularly.

Dalai Lama

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.

Fruits

In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants (for example, cherries, berries, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, grains). "Fruit" normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures of a plant that are sweet or sour, edible in the raw state (apples, grapes, lemons, strawberries, etc). 

Edible fruits have propagated with the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship as a means for seed dispersal and nutrition. Humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food.
