Open Water Season has started

This weekend, OWS officially kicked off with a few "regulars" hitting the water. I think Don Bond was officially the first to dip his toe in the water on Saturday. Windy and cold would be adjectives I can pass along. On Sunday, Don and I hit WNB for a return visit to the water. Less windy, more cold but for 15 minutes and it almost felt like the summer was here.( except for the cold water part ). Memories of jellies filled by thoughts. The good news is that for the next month, NO jellies will be seen!

Weekend swims will start to become regular again and weekdays soon to follow. If anyone is interested in knowing the scheduled , please email me ( ) and I will add you to the distribution list.

This Sunday is the tentative next date but I could be convinced of a Friday AM swim if there were people interested in a mile or two in the cold.
