I am glad the swimming lesson went well! Most instructors are really good, and getting comfortable is over half the battle.
I had this really good looking life guard/rock guitar teacher. Mini me sigh. I loved floating instruction
Loved floating period. I'm no pro, I can get from point A to B over or under the water (with a tiny bit of grace, if I'm being too kind), but I can float my behind off in a large number of weird positions. One leg up, etc.. I was fascinated by it.
