Irresistible....skin swim

Thursday 10/4 5:30PM report
  • Water Temp:  61.8
  • Air Temp:  64
  • Waves:  dead calm with occasional swell
  • Clarity:  clear further out
  • Crew:  Capt'n with special guest appearance by The Patriarch
Admittedly I showed up 10 minutes late and when I found a crew of zero waiting for me on the beach I figured that I'd just take a water temp reading and call it a night.  Much to surprise the water temp was 62, the lake surface was flat and the clarity was decent....so how could I say "no" to a skin swim???  Not I!  The Patriarch did though....but without his swim gear I'm sure he didn't want to get his hair wet.  :)  Nonetheless, it was great to see The Patriarch back on the beach!

Friday AM report

•Water Temp: low 60's
•Air Temp: low 40's
•Waves: silently peaceful early morning canvas between the waning moon and rising sun.
•Clarity: midway
•Crew: Gumdrop

The water was nice but the low 40's air temp reminded me of the importance of a good exit strategy.
