A swim with no one waiting for a call...

Last week I swam an open water swim, first one in a couple of years.  

I got out and then remembered that no one was waiting for my call.  

Not my Mom, whom I bought my first cell phone because she wanted to know when I got out of the water and usually there were few phones.  

Not my Dad, whom wouldn't travel with me domestic or abroad but always was waiting for my call.  

Mom and Dad are having rough times and don't have time to worry about me.  It was very strange that no one was waiting for a call.

It became very apparent it is a lonely new world these days...'solo' swims has taken on a new meaning.

More on the Adventure later when my mood picks up.
