Melancholy Morning

Next Swim: Fri 7/9 5:45AM Klode

Last Swim: Thur 7/8 5:45AM
Water Temp: 48
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: Very Clear
Crew: Diablo, Cap'n, Kahuna, Beth, Robin, Patriarch

The beach was exceptionally beautiful this morning, in an eerie sort of way, as heavy fog rolled in. Exceptionally cold water temps added to the melancholy mood. Guts, persistence, and determination were required to swim this morning, all of which I lack, so Robin and me watched from shore as Diablo, Cap'n, Kahuna, and Beth disappeared into the fog. They didn't make it far, but far enough to count, and keep our streak of consecutive swim days alive.

The good news: the big offshore winds have finally ceased, so perhaps there is a chance of warming.
