Persistence Rewarded

Next Swims:
Thursday September 4th 6AM
Friday September 5th 6AM

Last Swim: Wednesday September 3rd 6AM
Water Temp 56 (Kahuna and Capt'n claim it was warmer than that further out, but that's just wishful thinking)
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: Excellent
Crew: Diablo, Showgirl, Kahuna, Bubba, Capt'n, Patriarch
Wetsuit Skin: 4/2

Yesterday we were shocked to find water temps in the 40's.  This morning we were just as surprised to find a water temp of 56 with a calm clear lake.  Which just goes to show that it doesn't matter what the forecast says or what the National Weather Service maps say, you never really know what the conditions are until you get to the beach.

There are only so many good swim days in a season and so my strategy is to show up as often as possible knowing that some days will go bust, but in the long run persistence is rewarded,

It was a beautiful swim.  Kahuna took some great pictures this morning:

He wishes to retract portions of his prior post. The post should have referred to Phil and Phil's adorable tots, not Nannook and Nannook's adorable tots. Kahuna regrets the error, and apologizes to Nannook, and her adorable tots.
