Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Clean.
Many are incredulous that the waters around Manhattan are clean enough to swim in.
But it’s true.*
These are photos from the last three years of the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, a world-class, 28.5-mile swim around Manhattan, organized by NYC Swim every June or July. (Stories and more photos are here, here, and here.) This year on June 14, June 28, and July 12!
*Of course, you should still probably get your shots first 😉
