Indeed, it was a pleasant evening to walk the plank. Clear skies, no wind, calm seas, crystal clear water and an air temp in the low 70's. Unfortunately the Lady of the Lake didn't get the same memo. While the Klode bay may have had a very appealing topical appearance the water temp registered just 57.4 on the Captn-o-meter.
This evening's swim featured a voyage up to mudslide and back following a route further offshore than normal. While it was never officially spoken I think our route this evening was dictated by a secret desire to find the warm water which to the eye always appeared to be just a tad bit further out than we were swimming....although it was a bit odd how a few crew members momentarily thought they had found warm water just behind The Patriarch.
