I love the swim events in SF Bay, but I sure am glad that I do all my workouts in Lake Michigan. It seems that the swimmers out there have to deal with some rather pesky sea lions:
“One bumped against me three times, then he went and nipped my little toe,” San Francisco swimmer Sarah McCusky told FOX News…The animals are protected under federal law and as Sarah McCusky points out, they were there first. But she and other swimmers don’t feel entirely safe in the water with half-ton carnivores. “I think it’s made us all a little bit more anxious about exactly where we will swim to,” McCusky said.
