Jeannie Zappe On Observing Caroline Block On WOWSA Live

Sponsored by KAATSU Global, Huntington Beach, California.

Jeannie Zappe recalled when Dr. Caroline Block was nearing the end of her record-setting 52 hour 24 minute 103.6 km two-way crossing of Lake George, two fishermen blared out Neil Diamond’s 1969 song Sweet Caroline.

It was a sweet feeling when Dr. Block finished her unprecedented crossing.
