Shiver Me Timbers
Next Swim: Tuesday, July 6, 6:30PM Klode
Last Swim: Noon, July 5th, Klode
Water Temp: 49 !!!!!!!!!
Waves: Small Chop
Water Clarity: Ver Clear
Crew: Gumdrop, Diablo, Cap'n, Blondie, Jon, Jen, H2, and a group of H2's friends.
Wow! The water hasn't been anywhere near this cold since we started the season 43 days ago. Cap'n and Diablo managed decent swims, and Gumdrop made it all the way to mudslide. But I couldn't keep my face in the water, it just hurt too much.
Hopefully we're not going to see a replay of last August when the water was very cold several weeks straight. But the season is young, I'm sure there is still plenty of good swimming ahead. For Tuesday we're switching to an evening swim, to give the lake a chance to warm, at least a little.
On the brighter side, we did manage to add ten to the Killepitsch count, a great way to warm up after a cold swim.
