Wondrous things

Next Swim: Saturday@ 1pm
Last Swim: Friday @ 6:30pm
Water temp: 53.8
Air Temp: 67 & cloudy
Waves: calm
Clarity: clear
Crew: The Patriarch, Diablo, Lane, Chris, Chris, Dave, David, Slip-n-Slide, Capt'n

Considering all the rain we've received and how dark and murky the water was just a few days ago it wouldn't have been surprising to find the water quality to be poor this evening....but instead it was exceptionally clear.

Considering the cool air temps and lack of sun it wouldn't have been surprising if we had a skeleton crew this evening....but instead we had our largest group of the year.

Considering the water temp was a mere 53.2 this evening it would not have been surprising to see some crew members abandon ship before walking the plank....but instead each and every crew mate walked the plank and logged at least a minimum swim to the north down spout and back.

Also considering the water temp of a mere 53.2 this evening it wouldn't have been out of the ordinary for everyone to turn around at the garage....but instead every crew member at least made the garage and the majority of the crew made it all the way up to mudslide before returning home.

Tomorrow we swim at 1pm....I wonder if the Mother Nature and the Lady of the Lake will warm up by then? While it may not look likely wondrous things have been known to happen....

Thanks for accepting a new comer in your midst. As an extreme newbie in all things swimming...especially open water, it was great to go out with others. The water was beautiful. You'll see me again.
