In what has now become an annual event, one hundred or so hardy individuals swim across the Ohio River to the Kentucky side and back, a distance of a little over half a mile. The event took place on Sunday, 29 September, 2013, and our daughter entered for the first time.

A beautiful morning on the beautiful Ohio River

Some would rather take the boat across

A firey morning sky

Not many get to wear this shirt

Is she really as confident as she appears?

Just in case!

Looks like she's really going to do it

In we go

Hoo rah! Let me at that river!

Ready, set, go!

Nearing the far side

Returning to the Ohio side

Made it!

Looks like someone is really proud of his mom
