Swim Lessons

Taking a friend to Ala Moana for swimming lessons this evening. He's 47, or somewhere about there, and sinks like a rock. He says.

This will be my third take at teaching an adult to swim. Hopefully this time's the charm ... I failed with the other two. One really did sink like a rock, and though I'm convinced he was doing it willfully I could never prove anything. The second squealed and refused to go further than thigh-deep in the water.

This time we have some motivation ... this guy paddles, and it's much better for paddlers to stay on top of the water during changes - and since long-distance practice starts Sunday we don't have much time left.

Update: He survived! I didn't drown him!
