The planets align. Neptune, god of the sea, smiles. Jupiter will lead the full moon into the sky tomorrow night.
We've had an incredible streak of good swim conditions. A whole week of rockpile-or-further swims, and afternoon no-wetsuit swims most days.
This morning we were having so much fun we swam way past rockpile to log almost two miles. I hesitate to predict anything, because the lake always confounds our predictions, but things look very favorable for swimming all weekend. Perhaps we can try a Klode to Big Bay swim, and if we're really luck we can make the round trip.
