Last Swim: 1pm Saturday May 25th

The official Captin-o-meter reading from Klode's northeast beach read just 52.6 making this one of our colder opening day swims.  As a result our expectations just prior to walking the plank was that this would be a brief 5 minute swim up to the north down spout or perhaps garage if we were feeling hearty. 

Much to our surprise, after getting up to the north downspout we found ourselves acclimating to the cooler water temp...or perhaps the water was just plain warmer away from the Klode rock piles.  Regardless our total swim time today was on the plus side of 20 minutes and took us up to Garage and back down past Klode's south beach before returning to our launch site at the northeast beach.  Kudos to Amy for logging her first ever official swim in Lake Michigan today...especially given the water temp!

Sunday the plan is to swim at 1:30pm to allow additional Kru members to join in on the fun.  Be sure to bring with you any questions or mysteries you may have been pondering since last season....rumor has it Smartass will be joining us to help with all those troubling mysteries than may have resulted in countless hours of lost sleep. :)
