'Swimming to the Moon'

With summer finally here (on the first day of October) and warm ocean temps I am reminded of one of my favorite swims. Last year on Labor Day a friend and I swam from Main Beach to Crescent Bay in the early morning. As the sun was rising behind us and starting to light up the landscape, the moon was setting in front of us; hence 'Swimming to the Moon.' The water was warm, flat and crystal clear- we saw Garibaldi; it was a magical swim.

'Swimming to the Moon' is the study for the larger piece titled, 'Moonlight Over Laguna'.
