Secret swimmer man

I drove up to Maine today to take my Mom out for a birthday breakfast and my sister out for a "Your cold isn't that bad, is it?" lunch. Fun stuff.

On my way home, I grabbed a cup of coffee and went to the beach to ponder deep things about the meaning of life, etc. That's when I saw this guy down in the water:

I don't know if you can see from this distance (I was trying to be stealth like Swishy with my camera) but he had on swim trunks, goggles, and...a scuba hood?!? He kept staring up at the beach, then diving into the waves over and over again. Clearly, it was a happy moment for him. I felt kind of bad watching, but he was RIGHT in front of where I was sitting; there was only so much staring out over the horizon I could do.

If you have any idea what this might mean about the meaning of life, let me know, cause I'm stumped...

I love the secret camera moves! You're a natural!!

No answers on the scuba hood/meaning of life, though :)

I guess that's one way to keep water out of your ears! If I were swimming in Maine's waters, though, I think I'd go for the whole scuba suit!!

I don't know what the scuba board means about the meaning of life, but I do know that I'm completely engrossed in your novel! My sister, Stacy, sent a copy to me for my birthday and I think your search for God and love is an engrossing and important story to tell. I hope it hits the mainstream (like Gilbert's book did) and gets in the hands of a lot of people. Best wishes!

For the record, I won't go in the water off Maine in 100 degree July heat. Why? Because it's effing COLD. Good thing this guy protected his, um, ears?
