Good morning! This is @heathfish on day 6 of this week-long South Africa swim for Smithsonian Magazine. On a white flag morning in False Bay, I travel with the ladies of Fish Hoek to the nearby town of St. James, where they can have their morning swim in the shelter of an open air, ocean fed pool. The ladies duck into these brilliant beach shacks, open and available for swimmers on False Bay beaches. When they step out, ready for their swim, the scene takes my breath away. It’s as if we’ve traveled back in time to the set of a Busbey Berkley movie. I know we’re going to have a great time making pictures today. This is the moment I start to think of these ladies as Bathing Beauties. And I can’t wait to get in with them. #openwaterswimming #southafrica #capetown
