The Swimmer

I’ve just returned from a short road trip that took me to barrier island towns on the Atlantic coast from Delaware to Virginia. While I was staying in the lovely town of Fenwick Island in Delaware, I noticed the same older man doing yoga on the beach each morning before going for a swim in the ocean. It reminded me of this charming short film about Walter Strohmeyer who has been swimming in the waters of his local beach in New York’s Long Island for nearly nine decades.

NB: If the video does not appear in your email version of TBTP, please visit the home page here.
