Diablo's Holy Suit

Next Swim: Monday 6AM

Last Swims: Saturday & Sunday @ Noon
Water Temp: 54 both days
Waves: Saturday - frequent 1-3ft / Sunday - slow rolling 2-3ft
Water Clarity: cloudy
Crew: Saturday - Diablo, Gumdrop, Capt'n / Sunday - Diablo, Capt'n

The big question these days...what will last longer, our consecutive day swim streak or Diablo's Holey wetsuit? It's got a lot of holes but does it have more than Swiss cheese? Where's Blondie when you need her? ...for that matter...where is everyone? Slip-n-slip? Ele? Oh where-o-where is The Patriarch?

Yes, indeed...I've got a lot of questions circulating in my head these days. What I do know for sure is swimming in big waves is fun. So will we see any of the Ginormous waves we saw last year? You know...those 5-8 footers that totally freak you out from shore as they thunder into the rock piles but are so fun to play / swim in that you don't want to leave the water regardless of how cold it is.

The waves the past few days have been fun...I kind of liken them to mini launch pads as you can occasionally launch yourself over them if you're observant enough to watch for them while you swim. Hopefully they'll stick around for a few days...better yet, hopefully they double /triple in size in addition to sticking wouldn't that be cool?

What time are you guys thinking about swimming on Sunday? I am volunteering at the Lakefront Marathon, but would love to join the crew afterward! Then off to ride!! :)
