Like There Is No Tomorrow

It has been a while I spent four straight hours on a dance floor. Last night it happened again. Our swim buddy White Shark turned forty and invited us to a lavish wine & dine & dance at the Giesserei. We - that is, the other sharks - took this as a license to party boundlessly. White Shark also invited his other buddies, such as his soccer team, his squash mates and his next of kin. They could keep up with the wine & dine, but when it came to the dance, they seriously lacked stamina and gaiety. At the end it it was a pure shark extravaganza.

Talking about swimming... Unfortunately the 47th edition of the Limmat Swimming scheduled this afternoon has been rained off. I was looking forward to swim down the river today. But the Limmat is carrying too much water due to the recent downpours.

That shark photo looks scary. Oh darn... the Limmat swim cancelled. Really I'd love to do that one time! I'll be swimming more once again next month.. Who knows what in store for next year but I think I'm going to be doing a lot of open water swims.
