raised for the Alzheimer Society of Canada to date
August 14th started just before 3am. After an early breakfast, we packed and left for Peachland. We are so grateful that Float Okanagan and captain Christano was waiting with the boat at the Peachland start point. I hit the water at 4:50am and was swimming by moonlight for a good hour. The first 12 km went pretty smoothly. The next 10km were tough as trout creek point never seemed to get closer. Mentally it was really tough for me around 20km mark. Once we reached trout creek point and I was able to eat more (thanks to Cobbs bread for the chocolate scones!). The last section from Trout creek went faster as I could start to see Penticton and the Peach finishing spot. Was a day I won't forget. Thanks so much to everyone!
