Double Dippin' at 4pm

Beach: Klode
Water temp: 61 (am), 69 (pm)
Waves: gentle 1ft waves
Current: none
AM Crew: The Patriarch, Mathew, Linda, Robin, Brenda, Capt'n
PM Crew: The Patriarch and Capt'n
Water Clarity: (am) clear, (pm) cloudy
Next Swim: Friday 4pm Klode

What a sharp contrast to last nights conditions. Gone was the near shore tree well as the bath water like temperatures. Instead the water was clear and refreshing. With a wetsuit it didn't take long to acclimate to the conditions.

This morning's swim took us from north beach to the rockpile and back. Conditions were beautiful, gently rolling waves, clear water and occasional schools of minnows swimming along the lake bottom.

The plan is to swim again at 4pm from Klode's south beach. "NO WETSUITS OR BUST" our moto. :)

Current proposal is to do a Klode to Big Bay swim Sunday morning at 9am. Distance is 1 1/4 miles one way..2.5 miles round trip. Any takers?

See you on the beach!
