Me Whiskers Froze Off!

Actually it was my toes. Cap'n and me had a great swim yesterday, but today was a different story. We said we'd keep swimming until the Lake froze our whiskers off, and today she would have. It was painfully cold to put just our feet in the water, we never made it to our whiskers.

So our incredible run of 98 straight days of swimmable conditions has finally ended. Altogether we swam well over 100 days, counting the sporadic days we swam in late June and early July.

We'll keep an eye on her, just in case she changes her mind, but this just might be the end of our love affair, until Spring reignites the passion.

When I get a minute I'm going to read back on our adventures and pick out some highlights.

Back to the pool! Ugh!!

What? Your whiskers really froze off? That's mighty ka-ka-ka cold!!!
Sorry to see your swimming streak come to an end. I'm sure it was bittersweet, seeing that you were just 2 days away from a century mark.
I know how much you enjoyed each other's camaraderie and sharing your experiences in your daily blogs. We enjoyed reading your accounts.
Maybe we will see you out there on New Year's Day??? If you can endure 20-30 minute swims, you can handle a simple plunge. Best part of all, shots to warm you from the inside out:)
Thanks for keeping us all informed and entertained this [outdoor] swim season!
