It was nice to see some old friends back in the water again.  I hadn't seen Ron or Kelly on the beach this year. They sure picked a good day to show up.  The water was clear and calm and warm enough for a long swim.

Afterwards we surrendered to the pleadings of Showgirl, who forced us to go to the Biergarten.  As it turned out it was a great choice.  We're accustomed to spectacular sunrises on the lake, but last night we saw a spectacular sunset over the river, accompanied by genuine German oompah band complete with leiderhosen.  Eins zwei drei g'suffa!

Patriarch,
I cannot believe you forgot to mention the most important detail of all ;-)

LMS--I am training for Big Shoulders Chicago. Do you ever have Saturday or Sunday morning or evening swims?

Showgirl said...

THE MOST IMPORTANT DETAIL OF ALL is that today was Panini's first skin swim ever, and she went to garage and back! WOOHOO! And, as we all know, once you go skin, you never go back.

Lorraine -- I can't swim tonight, sorry! Big mayhem at work. I know I used to have your email address but can't find it.

I will swim tonight at six, if the weather allows. Thunderstorms forecast, but you never know.

Patriarch said...

RSM: yes we do Sat & Sun swims every weekend. Check the blog on Friday for times. I am also training for Big Shoulders.

Panini: I could I forget that? Please forgive me.

I'll swim tonight if the weather holds. Let me know if you guys are not going. Thanks.

Lorraine said...

I plan to be there tonight and will swim (even in the rain) as long as there's no lightning!
