The lake temperature is slowly cooling with some leaves now along the edges. Most of the trees along the banks don't show too many signs of changing their color yet, but their leaves should all be in the water after another month. A lingering cough is the only problem with swimming. Part of me dreads the cold that is coming, but another part is confident that I will be able to handle it.
Now I am trying to decide if I will sign up for the Alcatraz New Year swim again.
