And the Kru said: Let there be morning swims.

Next Swims: Tues-Fri 6AM

Last Swim: Monday noon
Water: 52, nearly flat
Clarity: Good
Crew: Drangonfly, We'Taco, Panini, Showgirl, Phoenix, Super Hera, Allie, FoxyRoxy, LittleFoxy, Diablo, Itch, Gumdrop er... Icepack, Cap'n, Patriarch, Mike, Neo, Mr. Anonymous, Kahuna, Graham
Skin/Suit: 5/14

Shore Support: NashT, Squeeze o'Showgirl

In spite of the wind and the whitecaps on the horizon, the water near shore was nearly flat, with just a few ruffles on the surface. The air was warm, the sun was shining, and the water was a brisk 52.

Undaunted by the cool water, our largest crew this season suited up (or didn't) and swam north. Andrea took her new wetsuit for a spin and is now, and ever shall be... FoxyRoxy.

After the swim there was an impromptu gathering at the Estabrook beer garden where we soaked up the sun and were serenaded by men in lederhosen.  We brainstormed about summer events to have, and declared our intention to host a Lake Michigan swim event, and call it "Big Swell" and maybe even a music festival which we will call... "Summerfest." The Klode Kru thinks big.

There is talk of a group purchase of personalized changing ponchos, where at least one name is guaranteed to be misspelled.  Stay tuned for additional details, or my name isn't Snowgirl.
