President Obama Greets Us On the Beach

Next Swims: Tue & Wed, Sept 7&8, 5:45AM

Last Swims: Sun & Labor Day, Sept 5&6, 1PM
Water Temp: 50
Waves: 1 foot Saturday, 3 ft Monday
Water Clarity: Stirred Up from heavy wave action
Crew: Gumdrop, Diablo, Cap'n, and Blondie & Brad played in the big waves near shore.

I knew the President was coming to town, but I did not expect him to greet us. When we arrived on the beach, Air Force One came in over the lake, performed a broad sweeping turn over the bay, and then flew low directly over us, heading for the airport. We waved and I swear we could see him waving back. And I'll bet I know what he was thinking: he'd much rather grab his boogie board and join us playing in the waves.

Too bad he didn't stop, he missed a fun cookout after the swim. Next time, Pres, you're always welcome. We'll keep the Killepitsch on ice for you.

Thanks to the Patriarch and Mrs. the Patriarch for another OUTSTANDING cookout! :)

With the forecasted high winds, it could make for a great time. Full canvas on faster waters!
