Diablo Returns in Style

Next Swim:  Not sure, but I believe Bubba is swimming at 6AM every morning.

Last Swim: Sunday 5/20 1PM
Water Temp: 53
Waves:  One foot chop
Water Clarity: Good
Crew: Diablo, Gumdrop, Cap'n, Cat, Bubba, Kahuna

Diablo made his first appearance of the season, and he sneered as the others donned wetsuits.  Living up to his nickname (think about it, would the Devil need a wetsuit?), he decided to swim skin.  It was the first attempted skin swim of the season, and no one believed he could make it to "south south" beach and back, the minimum distance necessary to qualify for an "official" swim.  Not only did he make it, he made  it in grand style, giving all appearances of just taken a dip in the pool at the Ritz-Carleton.  A shot (or two) of Kilepitsch was consumed to celebrate the accomplishment.

Welcome back Diablo.  And also a Klode Kru welcome to Cat, our newest swimmer.

Oh Bubba, where art thou?

I was there at 6am, and was happy to meet Luke and Marcy. We swam just short of the garage. The water was chilly but bearable, and clarity was good. A little choppy/wavy.

It looks like I'll be doing more morning swims as I've convinced my son he'll be okay. :)
