Weather today: Calm and sunny. The seaweed is starting to grow. As it warms up the water turns green and the beach can get thick with it. There were a lot of people at the beach, including some middle school kids in swim trunks thinking about jumping off the fishing pier. I told them go ahead, the water's fine! Sure it's a little cold, but you'll get used to it. Good thing they didn't believe me. I'd probably get to witness first hand laryngospasm and the mammalian diving reflex. Then I'd get to use the ACLS skills I just practiced during my recertification this weekend. I passed by the way which is good since I didn't study -- I was too busy working on my kayak.
