Last year the Limmat Swim in Zürich was cancelled due to cold weather, so we never got to see it. This year, the hottest summer since 2003, has made swimming the rivers and lakes in Switzerland quite popular, and the 51st Limmatschwimmen was on.
This photo comes from the Samichlaus Schwimmen that we did get to see last December when the water was significantly colder than last August. It doesn’t make much sense to me that last year’s summer swim was canceled when people will swim in much colder water.
Anyway, I happily scrolled through these photos of this year’s swim. If we were there, I might have joined the 4,500 people enjoying the waters, or I might have just been one on the sidelines taking photos. In either case, I would have been there. I hope to be at this event some day.
