Getting Closer...

Beach: Klode
Water temp: 53
Air Temp: 48
Waves: slight chop from south
Water Clarity: cloudy
Crew: Gabriel, Gumdrop, Capt'n with special guest The Patriarch
Next Swim: Klode 4:30PM Wednesday

It had almost been a week since we last saw The Patriarch at was great to see him although it would have better to see him in the water with us. I think, though, that he's inching closer to coming out of his self induced swim season retirement. :)

Speaking of getting closer we're now just 5 days away from logging a November swim....can you feel the excitement?!?! Conditions haven't changed much the past few days....53 degrees with a slight chop. To demonstrate our mastery of the conditions we logged a 30+ minute swim down to the Silver Spring downspout and back. ..perhaps a little long for the conditions but with The Patriarch setting the pace along the shoreline I don't think any of us will admit to it. Personally, I know I could have swam longer. :)

The plan is to return Wednesday at 4:30 for day T-minus 4. See ya on the beach!
