First swim

I had my first swim in the pond a few days ago.  The water was cold and a bit hard to get into, but I worked my way in and swam the full length of the pond and back.  We then got two days of cold rain.  When I went back for my second swim of the season yesterday, the water was bracingly cold and I only made it halfway (it was also windy and I didn’t like swimming into the chop).  We have some warm weather predicted, so I hope the pond will warm up quickly, as it usually does under the summer sun.

We’ve had some local fauna in our back yard this early summer: three rabbits, a turkey hen with eleven (!) chicks, and at least one chipmunk.
