Clarity:  Spectacular

The view overlooking the bay from Klode's bluff on Saturday was just like one of those post cards from a mysterious tropical paradise.  The sky was cloudless, the water sporting various hues of turquoise blue and a water clarity so clear that you could easily identify the various sandbars across the bay.

An impressive sized crew assembled for Saturday's swim.  11 total with Diablo showing up for the traditional round of Pitsch before walking the plank.  The water Saturday was a bit cooler than Friday but the number of skin swimmers is growing.  4 total swimmers walked the plank skin...a record for the young season.
