A good part of my preparation for the swim this year will be mental. I will visit, paddle and swim in Juan de Fuca as often as I can so the waterway becomes my second home.
Today Ray and I visited Ogden Point for a closer look. Although the skies were clear on the Victoria side, Port Angeles was surrounded by either cloud or fog. If you look closely, just beyond the freighter, you will see the point from which I depart at the base of the mountains hidden behind the clouds. And where I stand is close to where I will land.
