Meeting a swim icon......

It was a surprise when we discovered that our neighbor at Varne Ridge Caravan Park is International Swimming Hall of Fame swimmer Montserrat Tresserras.  She was inducted into the International Swim Hall of Fame the same year Johnny Weismuller (Tarzan).  At the age of 80, she is remarkable and full of energy.  She gave me several tips on swimming the Channel. She is holding one of her books that she has written on her experiences  as open water swimmer.  We were honored to meet her.  She is a legend in the open water swim community.

There is a buzz here at the Casco Bay YMCA about you making it today!
I am sending you love and support today and the rest of your time there. I know you have the fight in you to make it ALL THE WAY!
Lots of hugs from Freeport, Maine!
