The drawing challenge this week - 'Swim' - was brought to us by the talented Rachel over at Hi Happy Panda. As a Pisces, the watery theme intrigued me.

One of my most vivid swimming memories is of a time on the Columbia River at the Tri-Cities in Washington State. In the August heat, I took a dare and leaped from the shady bank into the snaky brown water, a living creature roiling past. The water was cold but so refreshing. I felt the current grab me and sensed the depth of the river - a thrilling and wonderful experience!
I hope I get the chance to jump into a deep river again some day.
