False Prognostications

Next Swim: Saturday 6/12 noon, meet at the top of the bluff at Atwater Beach
Parking may be a problem, you may have to walk a bit.
Special attractions: Appomattox shipwreck tour if the water is clear
Shorewood Men's Club Chicken Barbeque after the swim. Bring money.

Sunday: 9AM at Klode, followed (optionally) by the Beer Run at 11:30 at the Locust Street festival

Last swim: Friday 6/11, 5:45AM, Klode Park
Water temperature: 61
Waves: one foot rollers
Water Clarity: a little stirred up, bottom sometimes visible, sometimes not
Crew: Cap'n, Diablo, Patriarch, Kahuna, Lane

It's amazing how many of our predictions turn out to be dead wrong:
I predicted that Cap'n would not be here this morning because of his relay race: wrong.
Cap'n predicted that the temperatures would be in the nineties this weekend: not even close.
Kahuna predicted that water would be very cold this morning: it wasn't.
Diablo predicted we would be greeted by a flock of beautiful women: fantasy.
Gumdrop predicted thunderstorms this morning so he didn't swim: lame excuse.
However he did show up after the swim with chocolate chip cookies, so I guess that makes up for it.

Despite all that, the swimming was great, we made it to rockpile and back. We were joined by a new swimmer, Lane, who seemed to have a good time, hopefully he will be back.
