Similar to Monday morning we were greeted with dark skies and rain as we arrived at Klode. While the rain wasn't nearly has heavy and the winds weren't nearly as strong everything else appeared to be a repeat performance from Monday. Unlike Monday's am swim adventure, this time we ventured out for a southward swim down to south beach. The lack of day light and the choppy conditions made for a very interesting experience....one that I would liken to swimming with your eyes closed while others splash water at you and push your legs from one side to another. Still, we got er done...and to boot Bubba completed the voyage skin.

Conditions this evening were grey and dreary but we were pleased to find that The Patriarch has returned. To celebrate the occasion the Lady of the Lake threw a party for us...complete with 3-6ft waves that knocked The Patriarch on his ass! These waves were sneaky ones as they would pummel you by rolling in just a few seconds apart and then disappear for a few minutes before suddenly returning. To celebrate The Patriarch's return and this evenings frolic we threw down a round of Pitsch...ahh, what a great life we live!
