Swim Report – May 25, 2009 – Choppy Memorial Day

We were hoping for a nice sunny Memorial Day morning at Ladder #1, but overcast skies and gusty winds made the swim area a veritable washing machine. I had my wetsuit with me “just in case,” but I was still pretty beat from Sunday’s Bike the Drive. So I drank tea and chatted with Carla and Dave, totally content with staying out of the cold, chaotic water. Until Chris showed up…

Chris came out already suited up and jumped right in the drink. Not wanting to miss out on any fun and adventure, I donned my wetsuit and leaped in as well. The water was a bit chilly but a total blast nonetheless. We didn’t swim too far away from Ladder #1, but we sure got a workout treading water and navigating the whitecaps! Here are the shots:
