We had a beautiful fall day at Avila Beach and wonderful swimming conditions. It was comfortably warm and calm but not too hot with a flat and glassy ocean. The water was exceptionally clear for the Central Coast with visibility of 20'. The water temperature was 57 degrees.
We had two groups swimming today: Tom, Leslie and Niel went over to the Cal Poly Pier for a distance of 1.3 miles while Heidi, Amy, John, Jonny, Brenda and JoAnne swam the buoy line/end of the pier triangle for a mile+.

The water was unusually clear which allowed some fun photos.

Around noon after we were back on the beach the wind picked up and messed up the water so we got the good conditions that day.
