Swimming (General) 5:00 
Woburn, MA. At our hotel, Max and I splashed around in the pool. Actually Max displayed his first trepidations at entering cold water. Perhaps I gave him too much or a warning. It was fine after a short while for me. Later in the day we joined the Hall children and Kristin Hall and observed real water creatures at the New England Aquarium--very nice. I find it amazing at how much life seems to be concentrated in cold waters.
