Next Swim:  ?? (I will be gone until Tuesday, so please use comments to let the others know when you can swim.  Hopefully Cap'n will keep the blog up to date even if he's not swimming.)

Last Swim: Tue 6/5 6AM
Water Temp: 55
Waves: Small waves, but a moderate current going south
Water Clarity:  Gunky near shore, clear away from shore
Crew:  Beth, Gumdrop, Kahuna, David, Patriarch, Joey

A fine sunny morning on the beach.  The others had to turn back early to get to work (I feel bad about that, I really do), but I enjoyed a leisurely swim to the "rock wall" and back.  When I returned I met a new swimmer, Joey who hopefully will join us.  I'm off to spoil my granddaughter - see you Tuesday.

Last Swim: Wed. 6/6 6AM
Next swim: Thur. 6 AM
Water Temp: upper 50's per toe test
Waves: Smallish
Water Clarity: somewhat stirred Crew: Beth, Gumdrop, Kahuna, Diablo, Ben

To Cedar Grove and back for most of us. Diablo swam skin to sewer pipe. The water is warming up nicely now to the point where I am sure more of us will soon be logging skin swims.

Amongst the crew there was talk of a beer house which has opened up on the bike path by Estabrook Park, which of course most naturally got us wondering about Capn's recent bike crash. So be careful out there. We already have one Crash and are not necessarily looking for Crash 2.0.

There was also some talk about possibly hitting up Bradford for a weekend swim. So feel free to let us know your interest levels. Hope to see you at the beach!

Best swim of the year. Therm read 60 degrees and the water was crystal clear (5/5). Four of us walked the plank and swam down to cedar grove. You missed a good one.

Last Swim: Thur. 6/7 6AM
Next swim: Fri. 6 AM
Water Temp: 60
Waves: Smallish
Water Clarity: Crystal
Crew: Beth, Gumdrop, Dave, Ben

Even though we donned our wet suits some of us went for a short skin swim afterwards and really enjoyed it. Good sun, warm water and beautiful green sights.

We are still wondering what the weekend plans will be. Some may be out of town, and some may be shopping for new hooks. Leave a comment if you have a time frame preference. Some have talked about invading Bradford.

I was looking for some open water swim friends and would like to join in for a Sunday Swim. I am in the need of some open water swims before my next two races. Hope to see a post of a time and place. Thanks. Jeff
