LOSTIE NEWS

LOST Baby, Box and Beach!

So last week it finally started warming up!  The first 5 weeks of LOST Swimming this year have been: 9C, 9C, 7C, 12, 13C/56F!  Percentage-wise that's up huge.  The first 3 weeks were "stupid cold", but last week, at 13C/56F is not too bad.  Still cold, but pretty swimable... as 65 LOSTies made the swim.  And, of course, for all those that had endured the previous 3 weeks of stupid cold, now found it quite nice!  I mean, 13/56F is still pretty cold, but manageable. https://youtu.be/nH5Yye5pSoQ But tomorrow... whoa, baby... it's going to be sweet!  Mid to high 60's!  Summer is...

Ya… it’s cold. But warming! LOTW: Elodie!

Okay, week 3 is in the books. And, yes, it's still on the other side of chilly. But fear not, this is normal. It will warm up. Soon. In fact, we might be there already! you tell me? Mid 50's tomorrow?! Last week was another bone chilling 45F/7C, actually colder than the previous 2 weeks. But, LOSTies, being LOSTies... we still came out and swam. And in even larger numbers than the previous week... 52 LOSTies out last week!

Open House for the redevelopment of the shoreline in Gairloch Gardens!

The Town didn't include stakeholders... like LOST Swimming... when they redeveloped the over 1500 feet of shoreline in Edgemere Park, Tannery Park or Waterworks Park. As a result they didn't include any access to the water in any of those parks! No access to the water at all in the brand new Edgemere Park! So the good news is that because of the objections we brought to the forefront last fall with our Protest Swim, the Town is now including us! We now have the opportunity to ask...

LOST Lobster…?!

Okay, I've seen a lot of things at LOST swimming over the past 14 years. Things like: geese and baby goslings, a family of mink that live on the west end of LOST Beach, a family of red fox that live on the east end of LOST Beach, little fish, big salmon, big ugly carp... but I've never seen a lobster before?! And as far as I can tell, this was a lobster that got washed up on the beach last week when I was setting up. ...
