Four sleep-deprived Lake Monsters made it out to L1 on the morning of the longest day of the year – which translated to a 5:15am sunrise time. However, it was well worth the trip as the lake came in at an ideal 68.8F lake temp with the air temp just slightly below at 64F air temp. Plus the lake was quite calm – albeit not the mirror flat conditions we had at the beginning of June!
I again went minimalist – swim jammers and goggles – and did a long, lazy loop in the “pool” area that translated to just over 1/2 mile. I had flirted with the idea of swimming to Oak Street Beach as I do enjoy the psychological boost of making a beach landing after point-to-point endeavor. But I had to get back up north before Hurricane Joe and Nick the Bruiser woke up and transformed the house from tranquility to chaos.
As such, I only got about 20 minutes of quiet time with a nice cup of dragonwell tea before both fellows made their grand, raging entrances into the back room where I had been savoring the sanctity of a still calm morning.
Happy Fathers’ Day and Happy Almost Summer!
