We were 3 swimmers deep on Wednesday - Me (Rob), Ryan, and Pete. The weather was beautiful but there was a pretty healthy breeze blowing. You could see the water moving right to left at a pretty good pace. Since there was a little wildlife activity on the left hand side of the pier we decided to swim on the other side. The water temperature did not live up to the air temperature at all! The ocean buoy said it was 53 and I'd guess the temperature near shore where we were swimming couldn't have been more than 55. We swam out to the creek buoy then to the top of the pier. From there we turned around and followed the same route back. All told we were in for about a mile.
If you want to get in one of these Wednesday night swims you better hurry up! The days are getting shorter and the time change is almost upon us... once we run out of sunlight we're out of evening swims until next year!
