I’m re-reading Lynne Cox’s book “Swimming to Antarctica” right now. It’s *so* awe inspiring to me. I’m a very amateur distance swimmer (I swim two miles every day) and the stories that she shares just blow my mind and make me want to embark on some serious swimming adventures. Whenever I grump about getting into the pool, I think of all the massive swimming she has done in diverse waters (a lot of freezing temperatures and murky water…)
One of Lynne’s adventures is swimming in the waters of Antartica. And a while back I came across these images of striped icebergs that can be seen in that region, and they blew me away. How incredibly beautiful… water in all forms captivates me.
I’m not much a traveler, but maybe someday I’ll get to see them in person and take some photos of my own.
