Bonus Swim

Saturday morning Cap'n and me did the Lapham Peak Colorama run, and then headed to the beach.  We were astonished to find warm, perfectly clear water.

In we went, without wetsuits.  We swam 3/4 mile before we started to get chilled and figured it was time to get out.  Here are some pictures:

We headed to the Capn's hideout, where the chill quickly faded in his hot tub.  A bottle of champagne and a couple of shots of Killepitsch also helped.

This was meant to be our end-of-the-season celebration, but of course we'll keep going until my whiskers freeze.  We both have plans and the forecast is dicey, so I'm not sure what time we'll go today, sometime later in the afternoon probably.  If you're interested, post a comment, or shoot us an email or give us a call.
