We've done a Full Moon why not a New Moon Swim? With the sun rising later and setting earlier every day we're starting to see more of the moon than the sun these days....except of course when there's a new moon. Technically we swam Wednesday evening without seeing the Moon but officially October 7th is the New Moon.

Conditions Wednesday evening were delightful. Calm, clear water and an evening air temp of 72. In fact, the conditions were so enjoyable Wednesday that upon entering the water Diablo,
Gumdrop and I nare had a chance to say "Arrg!" before Beth had embarked on the journey northward.

Thanks to Diablo's internal global positioning system we swam diagonally out from Klode's south beach to the Garage ending up approximately 200+ meters from shore by the time we arrived at the Garage. We contemplated swimming up to Cedar Grove but we got so caught up exchanging our favorite Patriarch stories that we lost track of time and had to head back due to darkness. the way...where-o-where is The Patriarch???
