I was a little late for swimming, waiting for LotStreetWiz who was on a conference call and couldn’t get away from work. So I eschewed the wetsuit and just swam.
The lake was calm except for the occasional wake from an offshore boat. The light was an ominous greyish-silver.
Coach Kelvin and Nick were already in the water. I swam out to them, then from buoy 3 down to 1 and back again, then in to the dock. Total distance, perhaps 500 yards.
