Dazzling

Next Swims:  We'll swim all Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and maybe Friday too.  We'll start weekday morning swims after Memorial weekend.  Check back for exact times.

Last Swim: Sunday May 22nd noon
Water Temp: 54 or 55 or 56 depending on who's thermometer you believe.
Waves:  Small Chop
Water Clarity: Good
Crew: Showgirl, Crash, Kahuna, Capt'n, Diablo, Neo, Andy, Itch, Mr. Anonymous, Gumdrop, Patriarch
Wetsuit/Skin: 9/2
Shots: 16 (we got carried away with the beautiful day and the great swimming)  Itch accused Crash of being drunk but that's the pot calling the kettle black.

Maybe it's just because I missed Her so much this winter, but the lake seemed a dazzling bright brilliant blue today.  I'm at a loss to describe the color.  Aquamarine?  Cobalt? Azure? Cerulean? Sapphire?  Royal?  I think I'll go with turquoise.   It almost hurts your eyes to look at Her.

We had our first lunatic skin swimmers of the year today:  kudos to Itch and Diablo.  

Thanks to the people who bought raffle tickets from me.  And for those who didn't, don't worry still plenty of time.

I love reading these posts about lake michigan. Truly a place close to home. Just wanted to let everyone know that Lake michigan was ranked in the top 10 places to go boating in the US on formula boats website http://www.formulaboats.com/blog/top-10-u-s-boating-locations/. Another reason we should be proud of michigan.
