Swimming across the lake Pitkäjärvi is an annual happening arranged by the LaVi = Laaksolahden Viri ry. The total distance to swim is 2100 m. We were there for the first time in all these years. Neither of us taking part in the race. I would have loved to but my husband told me not to because he knows how easily I get cramps.
About 40 people participated. Picture just minutes before the start.
Then there was the toot . . .
Oh, they are fast . . .
First and second to return . . .
