After crying for several minutes upon getting in the water, Nigel enjoyed the swim in Green Lake, Wisconsin on Friday. I 'm certain that the crying was the temperature of the water, which seemed cold until you got used to it. And he did quite well getting used to it considering that he was naked and has virtually no fat layer, while I have some of that and my "new" 1950's swimsuit to keep me warm.
Nigel's eyes would get real wide and he would kind of suck air in dramatically when any waves came up. Maybe it was a startle reflex? But he kept on, the little naked baby in a big green lake.
