Everything was beautiful Saturday at the beach, give or take the chop out of the south.  And so... we swam into those annoying waves. Some of the crew went far, many went to the downspout.

The water was a carribean blue, and a delightful 66, with not a cloud in the sky.  NSN tried out her flippers, and made her coldest skin swim yet.  Kahuna continues to require ambulatory care, and the  Kru will be implementing a billing system for services rendered.

After the fantastic swim, we made our way to the Estabrook beer garden for more Crash birthday celebrating, this time with her lovely family, and a great spread of food (who made those brownies and cherry treats??).  Crash was, of course, the guest of honor, but running a very close second was Ruth's profoundly adorable puppy Cadence, who was repeatedly pimped out by some of the menfolk to troll for women. (Unsuccessfully, I might add.)

Reminder:  Klode beach is closed Monday because they will be setting up the fireworks display.  So our Monday July 4th swim will be at Big Bay (also called Buckley Park), at Lake Drive and Fairmount.

If anyone has a safe swim float they'd like to bring for a first timer--I'll be in your debt!
