Shipwreck Swim Sunday July 30 at 10AM
Next Swim: We will swim out to the shipwreck off Atwater beach. However, the path/stairway to Atwater beach is closed for construction, so we need to take the scenic route to get there. Meet at the corner of Lake Drive and Menlo. We will walk down to the lake on the path through the Shorewood Nature Preserve, then walk along the beach to Atwater (it's not more than a quarter mile).
If you've never seen this shipwreck (the steamship Appomatox), it's well worth the trip.
Last Swim: Sat noon
Water Temp: 58 on the beach, but pockets of much warmer water
Waves: Calm when we started, but building to chop by the time we left
Water Clarity: Good
Crew: Kahuna, Diablo, Cap'n, Crash, David, Mike, Sarah, Patriarch, and Phil was starting out just as we were leaving.
Even though the thermometer read only 59, it was such a hot sunny day that some of us decided to go swim. Like the last few days, there were some very spots and some very cold spots, so the hot sun felt really good when we finally got out.
