Dive in!

August 8, 2007

suitYes, muslimas observant of the standard dress code can swim.  Shocking, ain’t it?  It’s just a matter of finding the proper gear.  I just picked up one of these little numbers from Splashgear for my upcoming vacation.  Decidedly un-sexy, which is exactly the point. Anyways, the nuclear unit and I are meeting up with some of the extended family for a few days of splashy fun.  I can’t wait.

In the past I’ve always been on camera duty,  capturing the rapturous faces of cousins engaged in splash battles and toddlers testing out their water wings.  This time I get to come down the water slide, wage a splash war, and help my son learn to float.  It’s my turn to make a splash.
