Back in Business!

Beach: Klode
Water temp: 60
Waves: slight chop
Current: from the south
Clarity: Outstanding
Crew: The Patriarch, Capt'n
Next swim: Friday 6AM Klode

60 never felt sooo good!! Upon dipping our toes in the water it was as if the stormy clouds instantly parted and the warm rays of the sun shined down upon us....out of the corner of my eye I think I even saw The Patriarch's whiskers leap to attention as if being called back into service.

Yes, the water was a wee bit chilly and took a bit for our faces to adjust to but we were like kids in a candy store....excited to reacquaint ourselves with what felt like a long lost friend. (It was 4 whole days after all that the lake was under seige!)

Water clarity was brilliant and the slight chop and current from the south made the journey from Klode's south beach to the sewer pipe quite a workout. The journey back, though, felt as if we had jet packs strapped to our backs.

In fact, I think The Patriarch mentioned that he may have even out swam an airplane on the way back!! Unfortunately, I failed to witness the spectacle as I became distracted by what appeared to be a school of small fish that numbered into the 1000's. As they all appeared white perhaps this is the fish the bay is named after?
