Welcome to Paradise!

Next Swims: Tuesday (7/3) 6AM & 6PM

Last Swim: Monday 7(/2) 6PM
Water Temp: 67.6  with warmer water (70?) offshore!
Waves: Small Chop from south
Water Clarity: Exceptional with one brief trout sighting by Showgirl
Crew: Patriarch, Kahuna, Gumdrop, Showgirl, eRun, Diablo, Capt'n with a festive crew of additional swimmers also swimming from Klode at the same time

The water was so nice this evening the entire Klode Kru (sans one) swam skin this evening....the lone exception being eRun who showed up a little later and didn't have the benefit of knowing that the Patriarch-o-meter read 70 prior to walking the plank.  (...the official Captn-o-meter recorded a 67.6 as the coldest reading that could be found from the Klode beach.)

Also enjoying the pleasant conditions off the Klode beach shores this evening was a jovial crew of swimmers training for upcoming triathlons.  Rumor has it that they may have been migrating from one of those murky / weedy lakes commonly found everywhere else besides Lake Michigan.  Will they ever be able to return to those proverbial puddles of mud & muck now that they've experienced open water swimming paradise?
