Wednesday Evening, May 8, 2013
We had very nice conditions tonight. It was sunny and windy at Avila Beach when I arrived. There was a strong wind out of the WSW that was pushing a strong current and wind chop that was running right to left almost parallel to the beach. The water temperature was 59 degrees. Swimming tonight were Niel, Byron, Mark and Marie. We decided to go out along the pier and to do the left half of the triangle and then see if anything else was tempting. When we got to the buoy line Marie decided to stay and play in the surf so there were three of us to continue to the end of the pier. When we stopped and grouped up I could tell that the wind was going down and the water was flattening out. The rest of the swim was done in improving conditions. We were all so relaxed when we got back to the pier that we called it a great short swim and got out. The water was almost glassy when we were walking up the beach. 1200M in 28 minutes.
