At 5:45 Avila Beach was sunny, warm and windy. The breeze was out of the SE and was strong enough to push up a wind chop but no whitecaps. The water still fairly clear and I recorded a temperature of 65 F / 18.333 C.
I was expecting to be by myself and no one else showed. I hung out for a while and decided I was more interested in dinner than swimming.
I'll be back Sunday.
