29 Shots & 2 new nicknames

Next Swim: Monday 8/9 6:30PM

Last Swim: Sunday 8/8 1PM
Water Temp: 60 (near shore) 55ish (offshore)
Waves: calm
Crew: The Patriarch, Diablo, Gundrop, Kahuna, Sonofkahuna, Blondie, Padre, Ramrod, San Diego Joe, David, Walt, Capt'n

Ah, what a fine day it was! ...well, that is unless you were in the water without a wetsuit. The initial reading from the Patriarch-o-meter read 59.9. It was taken between the two rock piles at Klode's south east beach. The water temp along Klode's southern most beach read 61. With sunny skies and an air temp in the mid 80's our initial assessment was that this would be one of those "colder by the rock pile" days.

Unfortunately (...especially for Gumdrop and San Diego Joe who swam without wetsuits...) the water temp away from Klode's rock piles was more like 55. Despite the cold water temps we still logged a northerly swim up to the rock wall and back.

To warm us back up and to celebrate our exceptional streak of good swimming fortune this summer we celebrated with a round, two, three or four of Killepitsch. When all was said and done we had consumed 29 shots of Killepitsch, emptied nearly 2 bottles of our sacred elixir and saw The Patriarch officially proclaim 2 new nicknames...Perry B. has now been officially dubbed "Padre" and Robin has been officially titled "Ramrod".

Due to the storms Monday morning our regularly scheduled 5:45am swim has been moved to 6:30PM. See you at Klode!
