It was a gorgeous day and we were at anchor so liberty boats were sent ashore. Practicaly everyone wanted to go so there was a bit of a line. To save time I threw the kayak in and kayaked ashore. Once ashore I stripped down to my swim trunks donned my swim cap and goggles and met up with some like minded polar bears to jump in the bay.
After that a few of us hiked up to a lake and I convinced more people to go swimming with me despite the lake being about 2 1/2 feet at its deepest with another foot and a half of silt/muck.
We hiked back down and I took the kayak back to the ship.
