A Deep Dark Place

Next Swims:  Sunday July 10th noon
Monday - Friday July 11 - 15, 6AM every weekday morning
Also, possibly some evening swims, check back.

Last Swim: Saturday July 9th 7AM
Water Temp: 62
Waves: One Foot Swell
Water Clarity:  OK
Crew:  Handyman Hank, Dragonfly, Diablo, Kahuna, Scarface, Crash, Scooby, Capt'n, Showgirl, Mr. Anonymous, Patriarch, plus eleven triathletes whose names I don't all know
Suit/Skin: 16/6
Shots: None, but breakfast at Solly's

Thinking that 7AM was a bit early to pounding shots, I did not bring the Killepitsch.  For this I was roundly condemned cursed and even spit upon.  Which I guess just goes to prove the old adage that no good deed goes unpunished.  And perhaps inspires a new adage:  never underestimate the dissolution decadence and debauchery of the Klode Kru.

Speaking of being lost at sea, Gumdrop's wetsuit and then Gumdrop were nearly swallowed whole by our dear Lady of the Lake.  His threw his wetsuit onto a large rock to dry, but it slid into a crevasse between rocks.  And then the waves pushed it further into the hole.  After much maneuvering and almost falling in himself he managed to fish it out with a long stick.  The sad part is that this very same thing has happened to Kru members several other times, but it would be expecting far too much from this hopeless bunch to learn from it's mistakes.

When the Lady tries to rip your top off, then you know she really likes you!

Maybe I've been doing this all wrong. Pretty amazing video, demonstration sport, mono-fin racing, 50 meter finals, followed by the 100 meter finals, at the European Games:
