Okay, we didn't make swimming great again, swimming has always been great.  But it was exceptionally great today, given that it's NOVEMBER and we're still swimming.

We arrived at the beach to see completely flat water and a cloudless sky.  The International Man of Mystery, Diablo, made his mysterious entrance thru the trees.

Also notable, the skins outnumbered the suits!  There was a lot of post-swim shivering, but it was totally worth it, as we warmed up in the beautiful sun. Several swam to mudslide, and others to the birches.  Unfortunately, as the leaves have fallen, THE birches are harder to identify among all the other... birches.

And, while we jumped into the lake with abandon, this creature struggled to exit.
