Sad and yet inspirational to watch…

Penny Palfrey knows what she is doing, and still giving us instructions and directions. So mentally she is aware. Yet her tongue, lips and lats are really hurting.

Almost finished with this incredible 68-mile swim, Penny has only 5.5 miles to go. She doesn’t want to get out and we are watching her like a hawk.

But she will run into an opposing current soon nearer to shore that may slow her down yet again. So we are angling her so she can hit the Morritt’s channel spot on.

We can see Morritts in the distance.

At this rate, she will reach the reef around 9:30 pm tonight.
She is beyond superhuman.
