Keeping the streak alive...barely

Next Swim: Wednesday 9/22 6AM

Last Swim: Tuesday 9/21 5:30PM
Water Temp: 55.8
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: clear
Crew: Diablo, Gumdrop, Capt'n

Of course this blog post pales in comparison to the most excellent news found in the last post...The Patriarch is now a GRAND PAPPY....Congrats to The Patriarch!!!

Well, it may have been a bit too close for comfort but this evening's crew managed to get 'er done. With the rumble of thunder approaching we knew we had little time to dilly dally if we were to keep our streak of 121 consecutive days of swimming alive...although we still found sufficient time to take a precise water temp with our ever trusty Patriarch-o-meter.

The balmy water temps this evening made it very tempting to log a longer swim....in fact Gumdrop swam skin and Diablo and I actually had decided to extend this evenings swim beyond our north sewer pipe and back swim until Mother Nature sent a shot across the western sky which sent us rushing for the shore. (...I don't think I've ever seen Diablo swim so fast...)

Our consecutive day swim streak now stands at 122 days and counting....which coincidentally is more than the Killepitsch Shot Counter (120). The record number of swim days for a year currently stands at 132. At our current pace we will tie the record on October 1st and break the record on Saturday October 2nd....
