There were a lot of people on the beach today but only a few swimmers. It was warm, almost hot and calm with no surf but the water was again 50 degrees. There were several large dolphins swimming along the buoy line on the east side of the pier and two pelicans diving for snacks. Sylvia decided to sit on the beach with the Sunday paper so Ed and I were the only other ones there to get in the water. We swam to the last buoy on the left, came back and crossed under the pier and went two buoys on the right side before turning back to the pier. While we were out there a breeze from the East picked up enough to set up a small chop. There were some colder spots that made sure that I never got adjusted to the temperature. Afterwards we warmed up against the wall.
