The beach this morning: foggy, cool, drizzly, damp, cloudy, dark, in a word gloomy.  The Kru this morning:  bitchy, whiny, negative, sleepy, melancoly, obnoxious, in a word grumpy.

But by the time we finished the swim the fog had lifted, the sun was poking through the clouds, dramatically shining a spotlight on the lake.  Spirits had lifted too, the conversation on the path up the bluff was lighthearted and happy.  Ah, the magic elixir of emersion in Lake Michigan.
