Apolitical Swimming

Next Swims: Weekday Swims, post to the blog. Itch said he might swim at 2pm.
Saturday, Sunday 11/12,13 noon

Last Swim:  Sunday Noon
Water:  54.5 annoying chop out of the south
Clarity: crystal
Crew:  Itch, Diablo, Handyman Hank, Showgirl, We'Taco, Gumdrop, Mike, Panini
Shore Support: Squeeze o'Showgirl, Mike's son, Mike's son's dog
skin/suit: 3/5

Today's water temp was about the same as yesterday, but the group motivation seemed a wee bit lower.  However, the lake rewarded us for our efforts with amazing, sparkling water clarity.

We swam south into the chop, most to the picnic table, a few further.  Mike said he saw a big fish.

These creatures were also spotted creeping near the shoreline:

tried a couple of times, the lake is just angry. rough but still in the mid/lower 50's so I'm going to give it another try today.

Just a general APB, my phone died and some of your phone numbers with it. Hopefully I'll be recovering these over the next few days -
