Evanston, August 11

Yesterday was so good Jody and I returned with a goal of a two wall swim. At first conditions seemed similar to yesterday, a little cloudier, even smoother and a bit warmer, 76. But we did notice thermoclines with cooler water about 3 feet below the surface. The swim up to the second wall was uneventful but pleasant. But by then the south wind had strengthened bringing ripples and a northbound current. So the swim back was harder. So rather than enjoying the swim we felt a sense of accomplishment, which was even better leading to an after swim visit to Starbucks rather than Dunking Donuts.
