Our Place on the Lake

Next Swims: Fri 6am

Last Swim: Thurs 6am
Water: 51F (by my toe-momenter), small swells
Clarity: very good away from shore
Crew: Panini, Showgirl, Mike, Diablo
Skin/Suit: 1/3

It was another super-beautiful morning at the beach. Diablo was pedaling away as I arrived in the parking lot, and as Mike, Panini, and I walked down the ramp, we could hear the sound of waves on the shore.

Knowing that Diablo had just swam skin meant there was no question whether we were going in, so no one even bothered to try the water before suiting up.  With the usual vow to make it to sewerpipe, we passed it by and continued on the scenic tour north, past garage to the birches.

Back on shore, we chatted about how great it would be to have a vacation cottage up north. In the end, we agreed that having Lake Michigan in our back yard is even better.
