Happy 2013!

Here’s a quick look back at 2012. We sure had fun, didn’t we?

July 20, 1969 – Apollo 11 Lunar Landing

43 years ago today!

Happy Summer!

The lake temp is 63F-64F at L1 with a colder thermocline layer moving in that’s about 1 meter below the surface. But it’s hot and sunny, so get on out to the lake!

Memorial Day 2012

Be sure to thank a veteran before you fire up the grill today.

November 11 – Armistice Day

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

– Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (May 3, 1915)

Lake Monsters in Maui!

As we get ready to brave the forecasted 50F – 53F lake tomorrow, it’s good to know that others are dealing with similar challenges during their swims. Here’s Brian, Lake Monster 118, and his daughter enduring the harsh climate and bone-chilling water temperatures of Hawaii. Per Brian:

Saw your oct 16 post. Check out my swim conditions. 86 air temp. 80 water temp. 1 foot swells. water visability forever.My daughter and me in Maui.
