Makin' Waves in Canyon Ferry

Hello Swimfans!
Kate here; Emily is doing great!  She is cracking jokes and threatened to bite a pike if it bit her.
She hasn't complained at all!  Shoulders feel sore sometimes, but it works out easily. 
She has enjoyed nutter butters; starburst; kiwi (slippery little suckers); UCAN; Powerade; and of course water.  :)  We even saw two pelicans!  Lots of fish jumping -- giving High-Fins to Emily!

We were lucky to get started on time this morning; Em began @ 345 am, MST --all despite a "slight" lightning storm that blew through around 230-300.  But all was well and we began in the pitch dark.

Emily had two young swim fans come to see her off @ 330 am!  Adorable little girls, ages 4 and 8.
Em signed autographs before applying her Aquaphor.  :)

On the boat now is a great crew of Cooke, Savanah, Hannah, Jess, Kyle and Vickie.  

Emily's sister, Krissy, and I will keep blogging to update.  
Thanks for all your support!
