Is there an alternative?

These are the times that try men's souls.  Or at least their desire to swim.

After holding steady in the 60's for the last couple weeks, the water temp fell to the low 50s today.  Tomorrow morning the air temp is predicted to be 48, and the water temp will likely be only a couple degrees warmer.  Is it really worth dragging my sorry ass out of a warm bed in the pitch dark?

Somebody help me out and give me an alternative.  Can anyone swim mid-day instead?  It will be sunny and 70 at noon.

Sorry Pat. can't swim at 12, some of us have to work for a living. But if you want I can bring some blue cheese to go with your w(h)ine.

What was the water temp this am? I'd be up for an eve swim if the temp has rebounded.

It was 52 this morning (Mon), although captain says it was warmer away from shore, I did no try it.
