On Sunday, August 19, Save the Harbor / Save the Bay hosted the Swim for Boston Harbor, a championship chip-timed competitive swim on M Street Beach at the BCYF Curley Community Center in South Boston. This year, nearly 50 swimmers aged 9 - 64 took part the race, which raised almost $5,000 for Save the Harbor / Save the Bay.
Here are a few of the photos I took at the swim. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them! You can see more in Save the Harbor's swim album on PhotoBucket .
