Jump!


When the sea is too rough for swimming, you can always play "catch a wave". Not horizontally, like a surfer might, but vertically, simply for the pleasure of the temporary lift.

Getting drowned isn't my idea of fun, so instead of fighting with the waves in Agios Gordios beach in Corfu, I just sat at a seaside cafe and took photos. This is one of my favourites.

I'm with you. My love of swimming has departed. Especially ocean swimming. I'm glad some people enjoy it, though.

And this is a very nice shot of folks having fun!

I join the group of the sitting watcher, I loved to swim like this but now I am just too lazy. Taking pictures like this, anyway, is just another thing...

The colour of the sea is great and I would be in the water! :-)

@ Jacob: Awww I love swimming in the sea, it's drowning that I object to ;-)

@ VP: I must admit, I did go in for 5-10 mins, but then I decided watching might be more relaxing.

@ JM: Haha I don't blame you!

I used to hang at Pelekas beach on Corfu. That was before they decided to build a big ugly hotel on the beach. The waves looks inviting here.
