Swimming is like floating in the air, I can not ever remember not swimming. when I was a child I learned to swim in our creek on our property. My dad would work with me. till the next thing I new it was second nature to me. Grew up swimming in creeks and rivers dont know of a time that I did not hit for a swim whole on a hot summers day. For that matter in the spring before it was even warm enough to go swimming. Now I have built a lake and just float out in it with nothing to assist me. God the freedom that this affords. Laying on your back looking up at the sky seeing the clouds or stars. this is so relaxing to me, I could not ever imagine not being able to do it or being scared of it.
