A fine summer day with (relatively) warmer water and (relatively) calmer seas made possible our first long swim in a while.  Some of us swam to the orange kayak.  Well actually the kayak "swam" to us near the mudslide.  But some made it as far three piers and the Amazing One tacked on another quarter mile at the end.

This being Labor Day and myself being a Gentleman of Leisure, I magnanimously toasted the working slobs that make up the rest of the group.  Work harder, and keep those pension checks coming!

Afterwards we headed to the Estabrook Beer Garden to celebrate a fine summer day and an excellent swimming summer.  Summer may be over but there's more great swimming ahead.

Anyone interested in car pooling to Big Shoulders on Saturday please let me know.
