Cold swim in May

A good group of 5 met on Saturday morning to take in first season cold water swim. 53C but no waves and a sunny day made the swim very refreshing. If you forget the frozen face, feet and arms , it was very enjoybale.

We swam for 1/2 mile out and 1/2 mile back. Once warmed up and learning to breath when you cannot , it was a fun swim.

Next Saturday, same place, same time for those interested.

In the picture Brian ( I think ? ), Greg, Scott and Don.

Of course, we cannot leave the topic without my departing experience. I think I must have frozen some brain cells during the swim. I left my wetsuit behind ( thanks guys for taking it for me ) and lost my camera. Thankfully both are no longer lost , now if I can only find those brain cells and memor, I would be golden.
