I ended up getting there at 6:20am and he was there waiting for me. It sure is great to have someone to meet up with for a swim. There is no talking yourself out of it.
This was Greg's first swim out here. The water was as clear as glass. It was the calmest I've ever seen it! Not even a breeze. It was great! The clouds were a little dark, but not threatening. Kind of a murky eerie feel to them, but still very calm.
We left the marina on the other side of the boat ramp on the rocky side looking east where the beach is underwater. We headed out to the red buoy that according to my GPS is exactly half a mile from the water's edge.
Total distance 1.45 miles in about 1:15.
Very slow, and short distance, but we did a ton of talking which is good since I didn't know him very well. He's very enthusiastic about open water swimming and sounds very golden as a swimming partner.
