Triathlon 2016 - a Photo Essay

We arrived at Bantry Bay Farm just in time for the 2nd annual Triathlon. This prestigious invitational event features teams of one or two competing in the bicycle (from the mailboxes into the farm), the run (from the greenhouse to Susan's house and back) and the swim (down the slip'n'slide in front of the barn).

The preparations included Porter and Finn testing the slip'n'slide....
