The waves and current have calmed down a bit since yesterday. Today the waves were fun-big, not scary-big like yesterday. Even so, swimming north was still challenging. The swim to "garage" seemed to take forever. Some of us a did a shorter swim, others kept going.
It's that time of year when the water is often much warmer than the dry cool air, and getting out of the water is sometimes the harder than getting in. The trick is to exit the water and get into dry clothes as quickly as possible. (Patriarch's nugget of hard-earned wisdom for the day).
