Superb!

Beach: Klode
Water temp: 71
Waves: slight chop from the northeast
Water Clarity: good
Crew: The Patriarch, Gumdrop, Gabriel, Brad, Sandie, Lindsey, Eileen, Robin, Capt'n
Next Swim: Tuesday 6AM Klode

Days like today are what make swimming in Lake Michigan so addicting. It was an absolutely perfect day to be at the beach....and an even better day for a swim. The entire crew swam from Klode's southeast beach up to the rock wall and back...stopping on a few occasions to marvel at how pleasant the conditions were.

It's funny, locals on the beach still bring up how cold the water was just a couple weeks ago....all that now seems like a distant memory.
