Flat Water = Long Swim

Water Color & Clarity:  Caribbean Blue & Clear 5-7ft
Crew: The Patriarch, Diablo, Gumdrop, Kahuna, Lane, Capt'n

Today marked the first official swim on flat water. The bluff surrounding the Klode bay protected the water from gusty westerly winds which resulted in a relatively smooth lake surface.  The calm waters combined with plentiful sunshine, warm air temps and a dazzling blue water hue made it impossible to pass-up an opportunity to swim long today.  ...although, truth be told, Mermaid sightings may have played a role in encouraging the crew to log a longer swim adventure today.

As has been the case all season Diablo logged his swim today skin and made it up to Garage before turning back.  The Patriarch hung with the crew up to "Cedar Grove" before turning around.  The rest of the crew continued up to "Three Piers" before reluctantly turning around....although the mermaid sightings between "Mudslide" and "Three Piers" may have had something to do with that.  (fyi...per Gmap-Pedometer the distance from Klode to Three Piers is .9 miles...round trip is 1.8 miles)

The forecast for tomorrow calls for even better weather than today.  Hope to see ya' on the beach at 1 bell!
