Choices, Choices, So Many Choices

Lots of options exist for swimming in the next 72 hours:
  • 5:00 p.m. Friday, "Big Bang" Swim, Klode.
  • 8:00 a.m. Saturday, Shipwreck Swim, Atwater.
  • Noon Saturday, Good-old regular weekend noon swim (expect a packed beach, and boats), Klode.
  • 8:00 p.m. Saturday,  Full Moon Swim, Klode.
  • Noon Sunday, Good-old regular weekend noon swim (again, expect a packed beach, and boats), Klode.
Last Swim: Friday, 6 a.m., July 3rd.
Water: 68, with perfect clarity, almost completely flat.
Air:  Warm with clear skies.
Kru: Showgirl, Panini, Mr. A, Thanos the Mad Titan, Patriarch, Professor Mike, Julie Pool Noodle,  Magic Mike, Eric/Brick, Lydia TTL, Dragonfly, Kahuna. Diablo maybe early shift.  (I think I'm missing three or four swimmers, sorry about that, but I didn't expect to be writing today's blog, add your name in the comments if I missed listing you).  

Easy to get spoiled with conditions like this morning.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for continued good conditions for tomorrow morning's shipwreck swim.  See below re a potential post Full Moon Swim social event.

Note that some Kru members have indicated that they might go out after the Full Moon Swim, for some socially-distanced socializing. Estabrook Beer Garden is open (but serving beer in plastic cups, and patrons are encouraged to social distance out on the lawn). So that might be an option. Finally, for those not familiar with the Full Moon Swim, that doesn't necessarily mean that folks are swimming au naturel.

Anyone up for an earlier swim on Sunday to avoid the crowds and boats? I'm thinking 9ish but am flexible.

Wytosk said...

I would definitely be in favor of that!

Tattoo Lady said...

I would also be in for an earlier Sunday swim. I'm expecting beach crowds this weekend.

missed me. Chris McElduff...and I guess I need a nickname
and I am interested in early morning swims on Saturday and sunday to free up my day(s)

Kahuna said...

I nominate "Mcgruff"; what say the Kru? And where have been Scoobie and Forger this summer 🤔?

Lorraine said...

Looks like we'll definitely have an option for an earlier Sunday swim! Captn says he'll check w others tmr and post a time. I'm flexible and suggest 930a. If others have specific time preference, pls post! For Sat, there is the 8a shipwreck swim at Atwater beach.

I am in for early Sunday 9ish. Also to contact the Atwater Buoy: TEXT 45013 to 1-866-218-9973. The Buoy will respond via text.

Sounds like multiple Parties Gone Out of Bounds (Who's to blame?). Sorry I'll miss them all 😓.
I vote in favor of McGruff - so long as he takes his bites out of crime in way that's not discriminatory.

Mr. Bubble said...

I've been asking about Scoobie and Forget, too, and Sir James. I saw a FB post saying he's been to Klode at some later times.

Hey Lorraine, I love me a flexible dame. I'd be happy to do 9 with you!
