Yesterday I was swimming by a group of boats tied together in the bay and I came across a guy in the water with a full wetsuit, hood, and face mask.  So I stopped and said hello and he replied, "Are you guys nuts?  How can you swim in this cold water without wetsuits?"  So I answered, "Well then I guess we're nuts."

We're so nuts that we're going to do it twice a day while these excellent swim conditions continue.  We'll be back tonight (Monday) and tomorrow morning and tomorrow evening.

In case you missed the comment in yesterday's blog entry, one of our number, Steve Wolfe, is doing the awesome "Mighty Mac" swim on Labor Day.  It's 4.5 miles across the Mackinac Straight that separates the Upper Peninsula of Michigan from the Lower Peninsula. He will be swimming in the shadow of the iconic Mackinac Bridge.  It's a great swim and a great fund raiser for Habitat For Humanity.  Please join me in supporting Steve and the Habitat by donating on the web site or buying raffle tickets from Steve or both.  To donate go to . For raffle tickets email Steve at
