Greeting us today was a steady diet of 3ft waves crashing into the Klode rock piles.  The water was considerably warmer than yesterday but still shy of 60 along the shoreline.  In addition to being on the cool side the water was also saturated with sand.  Despite the less than perfect conditions the Klode Kru today was determined to get er done!

The swim up to Cedar Grove was cold and murky with occasional white capped sea serpents challenging your efforts to move forward.  Those of us who chose to continue our journey up to Mudslide were treated to an exceptional surprise....a wall of clear blue & warm water!  The sight was moment we were swimming in cold murky water and then in a blink of an eye we were suddenly surrounded by exceptionally clear blue warm water.  Even more remarkable was the fact that we could swim along this line of contrasting water conditions as if there was a magical barrier preventing the murky water from mixing with the warm pristine water.  Needless to say we chose to follow this line all the way back to Klode...opting to stay just a few strokes on the warm side.
