For the last few days we've witnessed an epic battle between the forces of warm and cold.  We experienced pockets of both during our swims.  For now the cold has won. There were no more pockets of warm water, just cool, colder, and frigid.  But of course the air temp is still hot so it was still a refreshing way to start the day.

Today the epic battle continues.  The hot sun warming the surface water versus the west wind blowing the warm water away and bringing up the cold water from below.  I'm betting on the sun.  Skin or Bust at 6PM!  Please join me.  What better way to cool off on a scorching hot summer day?
