Several swimmers new to Lake Michigan have come on board. Despite rough seas they took the plunge.  A tough introduction to the lake but a great accomplishment.  Congratulations on your baptism  into the Klode Kru.  You are all troopers!

According to the forecast, rough seas will continue the next couple days.

Yeah, I hope our 3 newbies today come back some other day. It was pretty big water today for swimmers who haven't tried the Lake before. It get's easier, and a smooth, calm, clear, flat lake is a completely different experience.

Well, on the Kahuna scale, I think those waves had to be around 3-6 feet, and on the fun scale, I'm thinking maybe a 7 :).
