Tom and I get our wish -
Tom and I agreed that colder water would be better than the red tide and we got out wish.
Today's water was down a couple of degrees to 59° and wonderfully clear and clean tasting. Well worth a bit of a chill especially when thinking about the winter days when anything above 55° sounded like heaven.
I got in close to 8 and didn't see Tom. I did a version of the Yo-Yo, first out and left down the buoy line to the #3 buoy, from there to the end of the pier and back to #3, swim to #4 and to the end of the pier and back from there, then back along the buoys to #3 on the opposite side and repeat, enjoying the clean water the whole time.
