      It's ok to think about eating while you burning up the calories like crazy, which you were. You got in a nice swim before the lightning bell.

      I know Frosty but he isn't always the most enthusiastic swimmer and we did 3 turns around the buoys so worth it... Once you got out by the buoys it was less. Added bonus is the total sea monster appearance.
