Quick report as I’m finally out of holiday mode and playing catch up! The lake came in at 36.1F on Sunday morning. We had a brief but beautiful sunrise at L1, but we opted not to swim there again (follow up post on this topic forthcoming).
Not to be thwarted, we went north to our second favorite swim spot and got in a brief swim. We could easily have stayed in the water much longer, but the agitated, washing machine-like chops made swimming in an orderly manner an exercise in futility. Still, we got in the lake and started off 2019 on a happy note!
