Wow! Fourteen swimmers on the beach this morning! A new record, at least for a weekday morning. I mean who gets up before dawn to swim in cold Lake Michigan? I guess insanity is contagious. Speaking of dawn, the sun is coming up later each morning, which means it rises during our swim, which is very cool. Maybe that's one of the reasons we do this?

Here is the latest on the Great Klode Park Controversy:

Here's my plan if they ever come after us for being too loud in the morning: I'll plea bargain, become a highly paid informant and turn in Cap'n for rowdiness, obscenity, partial nudity, drinking in the park, piracy, disturbing the peace, bad jokes, and SWI.

I talked to Pirate Steve today (where did that name come from??) who said that if you registered for the Pirate's Plunge last year, you need to call the Milwaukee Boat 414.294.9450 to confirm that you'll be there Sunday. He's also hoping that those of us who paid $35 last year might be willing to kick in an extra $15 to cover the cost of the dive/rescue team who will recover our bodies if needed.
