Evanston, September 14
The air temp was in the 50's and initially the water felt warm, it was about 67 near the beach but there were areas of 65, especially near the far wall. There were still some 4 foot swells and waves converging in various directions. But overall swimming was pretty good and we were even able to touch the far wall without difficulty. We took our time this morning and paused various places to test the currents, which were present but fairly random. We tried to find the eddy by the end of the near wall but it was not present, only a mild southward current. The waves did subside somewhat during our swim but Jody did get a few rides on incoming waves.
We may try again but if this is the end it was a glorious end.

Big Shoulders September 7
The next day would have been more interesting with reported large waves on the Lake. But only your correspondent would have really welcomed that outcome for the competitive advantage he would have had.
