The water is just barely warm enough to swim some without a wetsuit (for me anyway).  But it's not quite warm enough to allow a longer swim.  I'm hoping we can do Big Bay one day soon.  It's good to get rid of the wetsuit though.

Yesterday we made Silver Springs.  (Note: we used to call this "sewer pipe" because it's a storm drain, but we decided to rebrand it.  Since it's below the east end of Silver Spring Drive, it will henceforth be known as Silver Springs.   So decrees Patriarch.)

Today we went the other direction to Cedar Grove (where there are no cedars, but never mind).  But of course that meant passing the other sewer pipe.  Any ideas for a name?

I started a little earlier, closer to sunrise time, and went to rock pile.
