A Perfect Morning

Next Swims:  Sunday Aug 18 noon, Monday Aug 19 6AM

Last Swim: Saturday Aug 17, 8AM
Water temp: 68
Waves:  Flat as a pancake
Water Clarity:  Crystal Clear
Crew: Lorraine, David, Kahuna, Linda, Kristi, Christina, Drew, John, Big Show, Diablo, Bubba, Cap'n, Patriarch

It couldn't have been better this morning.  We swam at the civilized hour of 8, rather than the god-awful 6.  The water was clear warm and flat and everyone was inspired to swim longer than normal, some went as far as Three Piers (where there are actually four piers, but it makes about as much sense as the names we give to our other landmarks).

Diablo will take over blogging duties Sunday as both Cap'n and I will be gone.  I'm going to my nephew's wedding in Florida and will return next week Thursday.  I'm not sure where Cap'n is headed, he mumbled something about mud wrestling pigs in Iowa, but he'll be back on Monday morning.

Last Swim: Saturday 2:30
Water temp: ??? felt at least 70
Waves: Slight chop with current from south to north
Water Clarity: Clear
Crew: Neo

I was disappointed to not be able to make the 8:00 swim this morning and after hearing about the great conditions, could not resist an afternoon swim. I took advantage of the great conditions and the prevailing currents to make a swim to Big Bay and back. I wasn’t wearing a watch, but the swim back felt considerably faster due to the currents.
