When the mercury read 67F at 5:30am, I knew that this would turn out to be a perfect late summer morning. And the foggy ride through the park out to Ladder #1 just added to the overall anticipation (suspense?) of the impending swim.
Carol and I watched the sunrise as it crested over the fog bank, and Ann showed up shortly thereafter to catch the show. I took the official water temperature which came back at an incendiary 71F!
The swim was a straightforward out-and-back in just my jammers, and I wasn’t cold at all. Although I say this a lot, you really should have been out there this morning. It was one for the ages!
