On friday morning the Open Water group went to the ocean for a swim amidst 65 degree weather and 61 degree water!!! Yes as we were getting ready to get in it began raining as you can see the storm is rising in the back ground of the "Here we go" picture, just before diving in!! The swimmers made 2-5 loops (depending how they could stand the cold...each loop was 700 meters. The staff had a hard time keeping everything dry and warm while they were out. The next picture is everyone warming up at the coffee shop just off the water.
We had a great time inspite of the cold. Just FYI The rain was so hard that we couldn't see the coaches or swimmers on the water for about 10 min. However, we could here them singing so we knew they were safe!!!
Have a great weekend!
