Swim report – May 18, 2013 – Early Summer?

Four of us met out at L1 at 6:00am, and the already-risen sun was still hidden by a low lying cloud bank. I expected the lake temperature would be around 52F – 53F. So it came as quite a shock when the thermometer came back at a fiery 57F!

We decided to walk down to the beach and do a 1/2 mile swim back to L1. The lake was quite choppy, and it was difficult to get a steady swim rhythm while constantly being buffeted from all sides at random times. Nevertheless, we made it to the “other side” and got a good workout of our stabilizer muscles in the process.

    Sunday 9am at ladder #1 the water was 60 degrees and near perfect flat !
    no need for a wet suit, cap, gloves or boots …. nice very nice indeed .
    i rescued a $80 volley ball and a leather Wilson football .
    i wish i brought my tanks because i could easily see the bottom while swimming today
