During all my years living in Seattle I have never swum in Greenlake - until this summer. The lore is that you'd get swimmer's itch. Apparently that was true at one time but since the geese have been better controlled it's no longer true.
Anyway, my parents' Seattle home is a block from the lake and this summer the girls swam in the lake every day. The weather was perfect and the water was warm.
I only brought the GoPro (waterproof camera) one day. Unfortunately it wasn't one of the days that Audrey jumped off the high dive!
