Chesapeake Bay Swim and Civil War History Night

Saturday night, we did an event at Antietam Battlefield, at the old field headquarters of General McClellan.  The home served as a field hospital during the Civil War, and a bunch of retired military officers hold an annual event there to commemorate the spot.

We provided the whisky, while others provided cigars, folklore, and food.  It was a really great night, and though I am not a smoker, I did enjoy the scent of cigars wafting in on the light evening breeze.

Then, this morning, a bunch of folks from our Masters Swim Team and I took off and did the Chesapeake Bay Swim (1 miler).  It was a splendid day for the swim, and it was a great excuse to enjoy some bloody mary's after the swim!
