Monday Cuppa--Which one?

Dani Pettrey Monday Cuppa Happy Monday, friends!


I hope you've had your first cuppa of love this morning :)

With SHADOWED releasing as its own novella on ebook - with its own beautiful cover - I've been thinking a lot about Ben and Libby and it got me wondering...

Which open-water swim would you choose? I recently read an article listing some of the world’s most challenging open water swims. Some of them are:

  • The English Channel (First accomplished in 1875!)
  • Alcatraz (San Francisco Bay)
  • Waikiki Roughwater Swim on Oahu (The original swim leg for the Ironman World Championship)
  • Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (Known as the hardest city swim—look out for debris, choppy water, and lots of boats!)
  • Ice Swimming (the world record for the most Southerly swim is in Antarctica!)
  • Loch Ness (Lots of lore to accompany you while you swim...)
  • Straits of Florida (Key West to Cuba, accomplished by only a few people, ever!)

So, if you were to become an open water swimmer like Libby McKenna, which of these would you aim for first?
