Locations & Networking
Any of you live in or near Cocoa Beach? If so, any OW swim locations you can tell me about?
I decided to just swim from the beach access point at my hotel. Damn is it beautiful here. More on my first day and a special "encounter" at my blog.
I did a short loop (5K) when I was there in June on a cruise stop from Baltimore to the Bahamas...the guards were helpful in telling me distances and didn't care the least if I went out there and swam to my hearts content. I was surprised the water wasn't as clear as I had anticipated and I got that eerie feeling in the water swimming out there by myself when I was there...kind of spooked me out seeing a gang of pelicans floating on the surface as seagulls don't generally do that up in the north! But you're right, Cocoa is a beautiful place to swim! Enjoy your time down there!
