Morning Swims to Begin Wednesday
Next Swim: Wednesday 6AM KlodeLast Swim: Sunday 6/5 1PM
Water Temp: 54
Water Clarity: Excellent, bottom clearly visible even in deep water
Crew: Patriarch, Gumdrop, Cap'n, Kahuna, Beth, Jodi, Lane, Sarah
If it were up to me, we'd swim every day at noon, but since everyone else is a working slob, I must sacrifice my leisurely mornings for the crew. We'll start regular morning swims on Wednesday at 6AM. Don't expect me to be cheerful though.
Today was another beautiful sunny day, and the beach was littered with sunbathers, kids and dogs. We had a delightful swim in calm clear water that was teeming with huge clouds of minnows, so thick they often obscured the bottom. Some of us swam to Cedar Grove (maybe 3/4 mile round trip?), and rest continued on to Rock Wall (over a mile).
It has been rumored that Kahuna is some kind of giant freak. If you look at the pictures that accompany this blog, the third picture has Kahuna standing in the water on the far left, appearing to be twice the size of everyone else. Is that just because of the perspective of the picture? I think so. (I better think so, or the giant freak will beat me to a pulp.)
