The fog swallowed us whole. With the lake dead calm and visibility less than one hundred meters the world was reduced to just us and the lake. Had the fog thickened a bit more we wouldn't be able see the shore. We'd just be swimming forever in a featureless lake, nothing to see and no sounds but the Capn's evil laugh.

6:00 tonight (Tuesday) Gumdrop-Brian and I are swimming at BigBay (kind of at the end of Henry Clay, just south I think). All are welcome.

Beth, Lake Drive is under construction between Hampton and Silver Spring, and Big Bay is very difficult to get to, and even harder to leave. I suggest Klode.
