Memorable Memorial Day Swim

Despite the rainy / dreary start to the day it turned out to be a dandy of an afternoon to be at Klode Beach.  Plentiful sunshine, warm humid air and a Caribbean Blue hue of the lake made walking the plank an irresistible challenge.   The recorded water temp reading at 10:30am by the Macho-meter 2000 measured only 49.5 but we were all pleasantly surprised when the Patriarch-o-meter registered 53 at 1pm....a reading which moments later was affirmed by Kahuna's Magnito-meter 10000.

Memorable moments from today's swim:
  • Diablo continuing his amazing streak of Lake Michigan skin swims...I think it's been more than 4 years now since I've seen Diablo not swim skin...and he rarely misses a day!
  • Neo officially became the first Kru member this year to reach the Silver Spring down spout.
  • 11 Kru members logged official swims today...first double digit Kru swim of the year!
  • Kahuna's lesson on how to meet the cute girls on the beach 
  • Meeting the owner of Pizzanetto....stay tuned for a future Pirates Pizza Night soon!
  • Showgirl's amazing pre swim warm-up show in her banana pants...
  • A hearty round of Pitsch that included a very special Memorial Day toast by Kahuna
  • Crash's'll need to friend her on FB though if you want to see them all...but here's a couple of them...

Anybody want to try to do a swim at 6 a.m. on Wednesday? If not then, how about Thursday, same time? Weather looks OK either time. Let me know.
