Wow!  21 swimmers joined us Saturday and 25 on Sunday...a sure sign that the water temps must be improving.  Also good signs were the duration of some of the Klode Kru swims over the weekend.  Saturday's swim featured 3 Kru mates completing the 2.4 mile swim to Big Bay and back...with two of them swimming skin!  Sunday's swim featured at least 10 Kru mates who completed the 2 mile swim up past Three Piers and back.

For what it's worth, we have now enjoyed six consecutive days with water temps above 60.  Of course there's no guarantee that these 60+ water temps will continue.

Many thanks to The Patriarch & Mrs. Patriarch for hosting this afternoon's most excellent BBQ.  The food was superb, the shots of Pitsch flowed freely and the stories that were told will most likely never be spoken of again.  :)

Thursday evening's 6pm swim has been officially proclaimed as the second ever GTGBFTOTB swim.  Want to know what GTGBFTOTB means?  Just ask Kuhuna.  ...of course shots of Pitsch will be available for all who attend this extraordinary event!

Thank you, Patriarch and Mrs, for a terrific grill n chill! Most satisfying and certainly entertaining.

What a great swim yesterday! I had fun and will make sure I get back for more. P.S. What's GTGBFTOTB? My schedule is open for a Thursday swim.

Yes, really nice event at Mr. & Mrs. Patriarch's place on Sunday. You have to come to the beach to crack the GTGBFTOTB code.
