Getting Easier?

Beach: Klode
Water Temp: 47.8
Air Temp: 52
Waves: none
Current: slight from the south
Crew: Dewdrop, Diablo, Hook
Next Swim: Klode 11am Sunday

The temp this afternoon was a whopping 1.6 degrees warmer than last Sunday. Perhaps a result of the sunny skies? Today we displayed our mastery of sub 48 degree water temps. Diablo amazingly swam sockless while all three of us logged multiple swim loops.

Our first loop took us from Klode's southeast beach up past the north beach down spout and back. Not content with ending our journey there we swam back up past north beach before returning and calling it a day. In total we spent 16 minutes in the water...some of it admittedly was spent doing a leisurely back stroke and celebrating the exceptional conditions.

We plan to return tomorrow at 11am to log wetsuit swim number 98 for the season. If the forecast holds out for sunny skies and an air temp in the mid 50's we might just also throw in a strip and dip to boot following our swim.

Any takers? :)
