Sunday, April 16, 2017

The lifeguards were out training this morning. 

We still have spring conditions at Avila Beach, an air temperature of 60 to 70 degrees (except when it is raining), a water temperature in the low 50's and not much wind.  It was low tide at swim time today so I could not get a water temperature from the pier. The NOAA station 2 miles away at the port was reporting 53 degrees. Our consensus based on the amount of time that was required to approach being comfortable was 51 or 52 degrees.

There was the potential for a sci fi movie confrontation between objects I've found on the beach . 

Swimming today were Niel, Heidi, Jonny and Stephanie. We decided to swim to the end of the Avila Pier, over to the Cal Poly Pier and back to the base of the Avila Pier. Stephanie had not been in the ocean in a while so she would swim to the end of the pier and back.

The route was 1.16 miles with nice water and good swimming conditions. The water was clean and mostly flat with some small chop and swell on the last leg back to the Avila Pier.

I saw Jon Harmse running on the beach, training for lifeguard season, before we left.
