Persistance Pays off again

Next Swims: Klode Wednesday 7/6 @ 6AM, Thursday 7/7 @ 6PM

Last swim: Tuesday 7/5 6PM
Water Temp: 55-60 but much colder right off of south beach
Air Temp: 82 & Sunny
Waves: 1ft rollers from southeast
Water Clarity: Crystal Clear
Crew: The Patriarch, Diablo, Beth, Chris, Steph, Steph, Capt'n with guest appearances from Padre and Jeff

The Patriarch-o-meter was all over the place this evening reading anywhere between 55 to 59. We all walked the plank off of Klode's south beach and instantly found ourselves in water that was probably closer to 50. Both Jeff and Padre decided to pull the plug at that point but the rest of us persisted onward.

Our persistence paid off. The frigid water around the Klode bay was more the exception than the norm this evening. For the rest of us our journey took us northward up to around the mudslide and back. The swim out was relatively easy but the rolling waves made the swim back a lot more work.

I don't know what got into me. I guess the water just "shiver me timbers" more than usual.
