Last Saturday, for the first time in over 24 months, I submerged myself completely in outdoor water! The closest I came to that was last summer, knee-deep in Lake Michigan, but now, completely! First in the Pacific Ocean, and then in the hotel pool! It was unbelievably refreshing, and I'm really surprised at how I had forgotten how glorious it feels. For those who are unaware, missionary rules prohibit swimming, so I was looking forward to getting back in the pool.
