Sadly, no naked swimmers or other outrageous adventures to report.  Just excellent swimming.  If  I calculated correctly today was our 26th straight day with water temps in the mid-60s or higher.

A couple years ago, I believe it was 2014, we had a similar season with a solid month of warm water.  Hopefully we can meet or exceed that streak.

But of course the superstitious among you will say that I just jinxed us by bringing the subject up.  I know that Capt'n believes that she (the lake is female of course) would just as soon rip our hearts out and feed them to the fish.  Personally I believe the lake doesn't care about us one way or the other.  But I do have to admit we've seen some dramatic skies lately, full moons, bright crimson sunrises and towering cumulonimbus nimbus (according to Itch) clouds.  A portend of something or other.
