Come with me and swim at dawn. Feel, see and share with me what it is like to greet the morning and the sea each day. Become part of this soulful journey of exploration and renewal in this magical world that is the ocean and its environs. The sea awaits you.
In this video, I prepare for my immersion. My feet reach the water and my shadow merges with the aqua depths. I can feel the cool breeze on my skin and the salty water chilling my legs as the small waves break. I turn towards the sun to greet the new day as the golden light envelops me.
Dawn Swimmer is me but she is also any woman. I didn't want this blog to be an expose of myself and consequently I've chosen to make it anonymous.
I would like anyone to identify with the call of the sea, the desire to challenge oneself, to connect with nature's beauty and the ever-changing moods of the day and ocean, as well as the process of growth and development that my daily journey to the sea has unexpectedly provided for me.
The person behind this is important but also unimportant.
As the journey and blog evolved, I decided I would like to create a space to hear the voices, reflections and experiences of other wild swimmers.
Here you will find stories, reflections and contributions from swimmers who value the inner aspects of being in and around the water, people for whom immersing themselves in the oceans, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls of the world provide countless benefits to heart, soul, body, mind and spirit. Explore the water in its immensity and grandeur through their eyes.
