Well, well, well.  Well.  You may have noticed how the weather became cool today?  The water became cool also.  It was beautiful. It was flat. It was clear. It was cold.

It was a dramatic drop from the 70-something we swam in yesterday.

I think most of us arrived at the beach feeling disgruntled and disappointed about the water temp. We reluctantly put on caps, goggles, and a few wetsuits. But then, as so often happens, a swim that began with reluctance, became something great.  Though the water around the rock piles was frigid, the further-out water was... warmer than frigid.  And so, most swam to birches, and a few swam further, and all agreed that it was wonderful.
