400 - 8 x 50's fins (odd no board, even board)
600 - 4 x 125's odd free, even IM

Did the above workout again

Total 6,800 yards in 1:47
Today's weather is supposed to be in the 80's and sunny.  Can't pass up an opportunity for an open water swim this afternoon after work.  Hoping to get in three miles.

This afternoon I did a horned strait at the marina.  The water was flat as glass and the water was actually warm!  Not complaining though, I loved every minute!
I also found a huge truck tire in the lake at this point.  I'm going to start a page of GPS waypoints of interesting things I find underwater.

Got an email with exciting information from Dave Shearer, the harbormaster of the GSL Marina, but I can't reveal quite yet so stay tuned!  
Total swim: 3.02 miles in 1:25

Oh, and Kate Greene's article made it in a national news magazine: High Country News.  She sure is descriptive in her writing.  I love it.
View of my own person paradise!
