West Neck Beach During a February Snow Storm: Not So Good For Swimming BUT The Cross Country Skiing Was Great!

We weren't swimming but, at least the seagulls were still flying -- see photo above. Our thanks to Carol Moore for these pictures of a West Neck Beach that we don't normally see during our Open Water Swims.

Along with the pictures, Carol wrote the following for The Water Log (or should it now be called The Snow Log?):
"In case anyone was wondering, the water temperature at West Neck Beach today was 38 degrees (stopped to take these pictures after cross-country skiing today at Caumsett....the next best thing to open-water swimming!) Hope everyone's enjoying/surviving the snow!"

Yeah, these outfits don't look like wet suits... but they're perfect for cross-country skiing.

And you thought it was cold getting changed here in September... our "change area" looks really cold today... even a full wetsuit wouldn't help for very long! West Neck Beach, we'll see you in the summer (spring if we're lucky!).
