No Sun Swim

Next Swim: Tuesday 5:30PM

Last Swim: Monday 6AM
Water Temp: 52
Waves: calm
Water Clarity: cloudy?
Crew: Diablo, Capt'n

Except for a few clouds along the southeastern horizon the skies were clear. The air was crisp with a temp inching ever so closely towards the 50 degree mark. The nearly full moon combined with an imminent sun rise to provided the only illumination for this morning's swim. Ahh...the joys of an early fall morning swim in the lake. Definitely a different but very serene experience.

The sun actually didn't rise this morning until Diablo and I had completed our garage and back swim from Klode's south beach. The moon and bright eastern horizon provided plenty of light to log today's swim.

The toughest part of our swim this morning wasn't actually the swim or the water conditions...but rather the cooler air temp that made your toes tingle upon exiting the water and actually make you contemplate re-entering the 52 degree water to warm up.

I am conflicted. I hate to miss the afternoon swim in lieu of the kitten ride, but it makes me sad, very very very sad, to have only Captain and Patriarch to look at.
