The title of today's post might lead you to believe I intend to blog about Capt'n.  That's a logical conclusion, but you would be wrong.  No, today's title was inspired by Ben and his concise description of the swim conditions of the last few days, "Annoying".  That pretty much sums up the rough choppy water we've seen three days in a row.  It's annoying to be tossed around like a rag doll, be slapped in the face and have dirty water shoved down your throat.  It's fun and challenging for a while but it's annoying in the way a good joke is funny the first time Capt'n tells it, but not the seventeenth (Oops!  There I go again.)

The unsettled forecast for the next few days suggests we'll be in for more of the same.  Perhaps it's the Lady of the Lake's revenge for blogging uncomplimentary reports.  I expect Capt'n will also be exacting some revenge soon.

The good news:  the water has been very warm.  

P.S.  Safe travels to India Panini, we miss you already.

do you start at Klode?

RSM -- Unless otherwise expressly indicated, all scheduled swims depart from Klode Beach. We tend to meet in the Klode Park parking lot a minute or two before the appointed hour, then walk down together to the beach at the hour. All are welcome, hope to see you there.
