Our suffering in cold water the last week has been rewarded.  Warm water has finally moved back in and we had an outstanding swim tonight.  It's seems so much easier to swim when your body is not contracting into a tight knot.  And no shiverfest afterwards!  Deeeelightful.

Lots of funny things happen on the beach, but tonight Nanook beat them all.  She emerged from the water and pulled three golf balls out from under her suit.   I'm still laughing.

This makes her the current leader in the balls contest.  Itch has a small ball, and Capt'n has one big orange ball.

Correction:  Oops, I almost forgot, Showgirl has a ball too.

Showgirl made a comment regarding a fella carrying around some golf balls while he was wearing a banana hammock at the USA Nationals swim practice...
