Wow...what a VERY pleasant surprise this morning.  The low humidity and cool air temp actually encouraged a few crew members to secretly wish for cooler water temps so they'd have an excuse to put their wetsuits on.  For those who resisted the temptation...and were fortunate to swim out a little deeper this morning they were pleasantly rewarded with the warmest water of the season so far!

Of course the veterans of the Klode Kru know better than to say the warm water is here to stay or that it will even last until this evening's swim...right?  Regardless, The Patriarch has declared today to be a "Double Dipper" day and will return for a 6pm swim this evening.  With the Pewaukee Lake 5k this evening at 6:30pm I may try to get back for a 3 or 4pm swim.  :) 

...rumors are also circulating that the Kru may attempt a Big Bay (and back?) swim either Saturday or Sunday.  Please post a comment if you have a preference as to which day we do the swim to Big Bay or if you have a preference for a start time other than noon.
