Stuck in a rut...

Beach: Klode
Water temp: 60 last night, 53 this morning
Waves: choppy last night, calm this morning
Current: from the south last night
Water Clarity: good
Crew: The Patriarch, John, Capt'n last night; The Patriarch, Sandie, Gabriel, Capt'n this morning
Next swims:
4:30PM Friday
6:00AM Saturday: Cap'n and Sandie will be swimming early
10AM Saturday: The Patriarch and Robin will be swimming at a more civilized time.
11:00AM or 12:00PM Sunday (preference? Please comment)

Morning temps continued to be on the cool side today. Considering the average surface temp of the lake is now 70 its been a bit disheartening to have now encountered temps in the low to mid 50's for the past two weeks.

Persistence pays off though, and our return trips in the evening have been more successful recently. Yesterday, the trend of warmer evening temps continued....of course warm is a relative term....the upward trend in afternoon temps is promising. We swam from Klode's south beach into a stiff / choppy current down to the sewer pipe before turning around and being swept back to Klode.

Weekend swim plans are still shaping up. If you have a preference, please comment.

Hope to see you on the beach!

Patriarch's note: Cap'n and Sandie need to swim early Saturday and they tried to tempt me into joining them with an offer of breakfast. Sorry boys, I got a better offer to swim with Robin at 10AM, so I can sleep late and swim under a nice warm sun.
