A post on The View from Squirrel Ridge reminded me
of this photo. I took it a couple weeks ago
while walking along the Central Canal.
At the first sign of warm weather, people use the
canal for exercise - rowing, kayaking, or
using paddle boats to travel its 1-1/4 mile
length. Located in downtown Indy, the site is
also popular with workers as a place for a lunchtime
stroll or run. While swimming is not allowed,
the canal is opened several times a year
for the swim leg of a triathlon and
a couple swim competitions.
The swimmer below was participating
in one of those recent events.
