Barely Bearable

Next swim: Thursday June 10th 6AM

Last Swim: Wednesday June 9th 6AM
Water Temp: 52
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity:  Very Good
Crew: Bubba, Zoom Zoom, Diablo, Showgirl, Kimberly, Danielle, Patriarch
Everyone in wetsuits, except of course ice man Diablo.

The water was four degrees higher than yesterday, inching up into the "barely bearable" range (as far as I'm concerned anyway).  The first couple minutes were difficult, but not so bad after that.  I managed my first trip to "Garage" this year, and several swimmers went further.  Another beautiful morning on the beach.

Today's quote of the day is from Bubba who said upon entering the water, "52 my ass!".

P.S.  There is a new Lake Michigan swim event called the Great Lake Plunge on August 22nd in Evanston.  It looks like a good alternative for those of us who didn't get into Big Shoulders.

Friday is not looking promising. Saturday is the SMC Chicken and Rib B-B-Q. Winds look low. Anyone want to do a ship wreck swim at 11:30, followed by beer and chicken or ribs post swim? I'm still selling tixs. Let me know.
