a May dip
Friday, May 31, 2013
Millen Pond, fed by at least seven frigid springs, is our hot weather haunt.
DH and I enjoy a morning or late afternoon swim all summer long.
Now, last Saturday our town, along with many other places had snow.
Granted for us it was just a dusting to two inches, not measured in feet like Saranac Lake, NY. But the temperatures were in the lower thirties!
This afternoon, for the first time ever in May (since 1970!), we went swimming
…in Millen Pond!! DH got right into the water and began his routine of various strokes. I, on the other hand, slowly eased my way until my waist was numb, then I started to tread water (more or less). It was only ten minutes or so that we swam about. How exhilarating and energizing!
We’re ready to try again tomorrow…perhaps for fifteen minutes!
Oh, did I mention that the air temperature was 90 something
and will be like that tomorrow?
Would you believe it is a cool 67.6F right now at 11PM?
