I Went Swimming In ‘The Lake’ (i.e.,Halfmoon) Alton, NH, Today — First Swim In A Lake This Year.

>> Water temperature in Halfmoon Lake … — June 30, 2013.
As I said in the above post I typically plan to go for my first swim in the lake around mid-June — a ritual since I moved to the NH Lakes Region in 1992.
It was too cold for me at the end of June.
Then we had the brutally hot weather. It was probably warm enough a few days ago, but we were not around.
Today was the first day we had gone to the beach in nearly a week.
We had all been working in the yard and were anxious to go in the water. The temp. was just right. It was not cold.
It was nice to be in the water, though I have discovered another downside to losing 20 pounds since last Summer. I am less buoyant. I noticed it right away. Plus my physics is good enough that I worked it out while I was swimming. Deanna did believe me. So I checked it out. I was right. Link 1 & link 2. Less heavy, less fat, less buoyant and I could feel it right away. That Teischan decided to climb on my shoulders while I was swimming vividly pointed out that I can’t support her weight.
