Friday’s incredible weather set the stage for a delightful mid-day swim.  Bright colors shown on the bluff.  The warm sun felt great afterwards.  Much colder weather is in the forecast so Friday will likely be my last swim of the season and memories of that swim will be in my dreams all winter.

I was surprised to hear that despite today’s rain three brave swimmers took the plunge.  Never underestimate the Crew’s determination to get in their swim.

I might be done for the season, but I know others will keep going.  Itch will swim anther week at least, and Wet Taco has her sites set on Thanksgiving!  I suspect Diablo will be in the mix too.

My name is Diablo. Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and never repeat myself. I have told you my name, and that's the who. The where can most readily be described as a pool. But there's a vast difference between being stuck in a tiny pool and being imprisoned. The what is easy. Recently, I planned and set in motion events to execute the perfect swim. That's also the when. As for the why, beyond the obvious healthy motivation, it's exceedingly simple. Because I can. Which leaves us only with the how. And therein, as the Bard would tell us, lies the rub

maybe we should find out if any of these are swimmable distances from shore and visible without getting scuba diving gear on...
