Swim Report – August 15, 2009 – Another Perfect Morning

I caught the sunrise at 5:57am and started my swim shortly thereafter. The water temperature came in at 68F for the first meter of depth. Below that, the thermoclines brought things down to about 57F. Still, that’s more than enough leeway to go without a wetsuit.

The water was perfect – calm, clear, and quite comfortable in just my jammers. I finished my mile and hung around Ladder #1 with my post-swim tea. And despite a closed off parking lot at North Avenue, both Amanda and Laura made it out for a swim. When we took off at around 8:00am, the Air Show mob was just beginning to arrive in full force. Yet another reason to get out there early!

    ??? WETSUITS??? WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN WETSUITS!!! AS LONG AS THE WATER AND AIR TEMP IS ABOVE 35 DEGREES THERE REALLY IS NO NEED FOR A WETSUIT OR JAMMERS OR FUR SLIPPERS AND EYE SHADOW.
