September 29, 2007: The LAST Ocean Swim of the Year?

Carol brought her camera to Robert Moses Beach on the Atlantic Ocean this morning, (Saturday, September 29, 2007), and "filed" the following report and these terrific pictures:

"Brrrr...! It was cold and windy on the beach, but we got to watch the sun come up over the water and that's worth getting up early for. The water wasn't too bad (maybe 65 or 66 or so), and pretty mild waves (or I would have stayed on the beach!)...Nine of us showed up to swim -- a pretty good showing for late September, I think (with Joye's son Josh along to warm the beach and take group pictures!)."

Thanks Carol... and for the rest of you -- keep those pictures and stories coming! Mike

Bob's Surboard stayed firmly attached to the car at Cedar Beach this morning after the swim off Field 5 at Robert Moses. FYI, Bob reports that the surf at Gilgo Beach was just as bad as the shore-break surf, (see below), at Cedar Beach (great for swimming though!).

The waves were more suited to photo-taking than surfboarding!
