Wow, back to back OW dips! After last night's most excellent adventure in the Berkshires, I met with Greg and Melissa at Lake Paran closer to home. The water was in the low 70 's with some very refreshing cold spots. We did two loops near the boat launch on the south side of the lake before Melissa headed home, then Greg and I investigated the weeds in the middle. I logged 1.15 relaxed miles in just over 50 minutes.

    Might bring a weed whacker along next time. Nice swim, though - glad I made it. And your outing yesterday looked very cool!

    Or maybe we can dredge some blades behind us and really clear a path!

    That looks like a beautiful place to train.

    Now I know why that moon hanging over the lake looked so plump:

    Thanks pwb - there are no motors allowed on the lake and we can carve a path away from folks in canoes or kayaks, or those fishing from the shore. The only downfall is the increase in weeds as the summer gets warmer.

    Greg - two more super moons coming! The lunar exposure is beautiful tonight over b-town
