Swim Report – May 18, 2008 – Spring Has Sprung…

Another great swim…

Sometime around mid to late September you wake up in the morning and you notice a chill in the air that wasn’t there before. That’s nature’s way of gently breaking the news to you that summer is finally over.

However, the inverse happens around this time of year.

You wake up earlier than usual and you notice that it’s not only warmer outside, but that it’s also a lot lighter – and that everything’s coming alive once again. Indeed, nature is telling you that it’s time to shuffle off the sluggish coil of winter and reawaken for yet another awe-inspiring Great Lakes summer.

Maybe you’re not a swimmer, and perhaps this whole open water thing just isn’t your fancy. That’s okay. But you owe it to yourself to get outside early this time of year and take in the splendor that only springtime in Chicago can offer. With that in mind, I leave you with these:

Magnificent sunrise

    Springtime in Chicago is beautiful. I enjoyed the pictures you posted. I even used one as a screensaver at work. Thanks.
