Cold Water, Warm Drinks

A warm fluffy towel, a nice long warm shower, relaxing sauna, a hot mug of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, a delicious meal.

These are some of the rewards that are cherished after cold water swims.

Zina Deretsky of Zina Studio knows those rewards well after a decade of cold water swimming in Aquatic Park and San Francisco Bay.

The science and medical illustrator by day also designs a number of coffee mugs, posters and t-shirts for her swimmates and open water colleagues at the South End Rowing Club.
