Roller Coaster Temps Continue

Next Swim: Sunday 7/24 1PM

Last Swim: Saturday 7/23 1PM
Water Temp: 52 - 62
Air Temp: 84 & Sunny
Waves: calm (slight current from south)
Water Clarity: great
Crew: The Patriarch, Diablo, Gumdrop, Crash, Jack Frost, Phil, Chris, Jill, Matt, Adrian, Capt'n

The initial water temps off of Klode's south beach were promising this afternoon....ranging from 60-62 depending on where you were standing. The Patriarch's reconnaissance mission earlier at Big Big though indicated that there might be some 56 degree water lurking in the bay. So we decided to measure the water temps off of Klode's southeast beach. The result....a reading of 52.

As it would turn out there were pockets of warm and cold water out there....mostly cold though. (mid 50's) But with the hot sun beating down on the back of your wetsuit and an occasional pocket of warm water it was definitely tolerable.

The forecast this evening calls for winds to shift out of the east. A promising indicator that warmer water will again return tomorrow. ....at least so says The Patriarch....and who would dare doubt someone who's introduced us to 'love lube' and 'Barbi the blow-up swimmer'???

I'll probably be going for a ride after swimming tomorrow, if anyone is interested.

Awesome, once again. Thanks for making Jill and I feel so at home...right down to the wet suit lending. You guys rock!

I have a blog where I write about the experiences I encounter on my journey to being a triathlete and losing weight (65 pounds in the last 3 years). Today (as well as once a month ago), you all became part of the experiences. Now, you're part of the blog: http://killthegator.blogspot.com/2011/07/walking-plank.html
