You would think that all this sultry weather would push the water temp needle up, at least a little bit.   But we're stuck in the forties and low fifties.  A couple days ago it got near 60 but then went right back down.  Meanwhile the lucky ducks on the Michigan side of the lake are enjoying seventies.  Damn!

But of course the few, the brave, and the crazy were not to be deterred.  And Diablo and Nanook didn't even wear wetsuits for their half-mile swim!

Saw the first sign of autumn along the shore while swimming this morning, a red leafed tree already.

I found out from a Village of WFB staff person that a dead deer was found in Lake Michigan at Klode by the 'sewer pipe' last Tuesday. And you all thought finding golf balls was interesting!
