Lake Washington, Homebase
Bailey Peninsula Loop (Seward Park) 2.4 - 2.8 miles
1 - 3.2 Miles
Upper 50s - 70s
I regularly swim in Lake Washington, either at Madrona Park Beach or Seward Park (Bailey Peninsula). The peninsula allows for a great 2.5-.8 mile loop. I started out swimming only 1/2 mile in the lake in the summer of 2019 and worked my way up to 2.5-.8 miles by the end of that summer. It's been a real accomplishment for myself, proving myself that you can do anything you put your mind to if you want it bad enough (Mom's motto).
I've also swam across Lake Washington in a race (total of 2.5 miles).
