Full Moon Swim This Evening

Next Swim: Tuesday 10/11 5:15PM

Last Swim: Monday 10/10 5:30PM

Monday's Conditions:

Water Temp: 60.4 (...a few degrees cooler away from shore)
Air Temp: upper 65 & Sunny
Waves: chop from south

According to this morning's paper tonight there will be a full moon. (...Gumdrop's comment yesterday indicates that it may have been last night....) Moonrise is listed as beginning at 5:46pm. My plan is to be in the water swimming (skin?) as the full moon rises. Anyone else interested?

If anyone is curious about the full moon schedule here's a website I just stumbled across: Moon Phases for Milwaukee

Last night I logged a skin swim at McKinley around 8:16 the downtown skyline. This morning Flipper and I logged a skin swim in at Klode going to a little beyond Cedar Grove.

My bad, I was looking ahead a month. According to this Navy site (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/cgi-bin/aa_moonphases.pl?year=2011&ZZZ=END0) full moon begins at 2 06 (universal time, for central time subtract 5 hours)on the twelfth of this month. So around here it would be at 9:06 tonight. At around that time the skyline across from the full moon at McKinley beach is a nice site, not to mention Alterra is just down the block to warm up with a hot cup of something.

Logged a skin swim. Under the Blood moon I set my sights North to Cedar Groove from North beach(where there is no washed up spa facial material,er, I mean algae). Water was comfortably chilled.
