The Swimmer

As this first video shows, Dylan has the potential to become a great swimmer:

So we thought we should take him to the beach:

Excuse the cinematography: it was so sunny Jo had no clue where the camera was aimed at. Here's part two of Dylan's beach adventure:

I have to say that I had a problem with putting Dylan in the water. Even on a hot sunny day, and this was a hot day, the Melbourne's sea water is freezing cold by my Israeli shaped standards. It could be stinking hot but you still won't catch me more than knee deep in the water (and those knees are likely to turn blue). If that is the case, why should I put Dylan in the water? Well, simply because the cold doesn't seem to bother most people.
Then there's the question of what the best way to put him in the water is. Should I just dip him? Should I quickly put him in all the way? Well, I don't know.
