Out of the Blue

We had a terrific time at the beach yesterday, and I scored a lot of points with the littles by doing a lot of swimming with them. I was quite the swimmer back in my summer camp days, but that was in the last millennium, so I was pleasantly surprised that this followed the riding a bike cliché, as I'm still quite at home in the water. My stamina is not what it was back in the day, but it seems unrealistic to expect it would be, considering when I was training to be a lifeguard we would swim 64 laps as a warm up to a training session. But I can work on that, which is great, as I've been looking for an enjoyable way to make up for the exercise I've been missing out on since I stopped walking Jedi a few miles a day. The soreness I'm experiencing today is a reminder that swimming is a far more complete workout than walking, so that's a win. This won't help me in the cold weather, as I can't abide pools, but I can swim under that bridge when I come to it.

Heritage Auctions website is a great resource for art scans, especially movie posters, etc. I spent days a while back downloading Star Wars related art/posters from there.
