I'll be back to swim on Tuesday morning at 7. That will be it for me for a week as I'll be out of town Wednesday through Sunday.
Tom L's Monday morning, swim report: On the final day of the three day weekend, it was still crowded enough that I could not get a front row parking spot when I arrived at 9:15, hence, the no ocean view photo. It was cloudy with scattered blue spots in the sky. Air temperature was 62°. Being the tourist curmudgeon that I am, it is times like this morning and Saturday that I miss the emptiness that came with the Covid shut down. As I was getting in, I saw sushi seal just past the break searching for breakfast… The water was 52° with a wind chop and bump to it. Swimming was nice, though, and tourists free!
Tom L's Friday morning swim report: the gray days of May continue at Avila. It was 60° when I arrived at 9:45. The marine layer was thick, but would be burning off by the time I finished my swim. The water was smooth, flat and glassy with temperatures ranging from 52-54. Aquatic microclimates. Good swimming.
Tom L's Monday morning swim report: arrived at 9:30. Air temperature it was 56°. The marine layer, and calm, glassy water. The water temperature was 55 on the east side, and 56 on the west side. The Villella jellyfish regatta has sailed on to points beyond. Beautiful morning swim.
Tom's Friday morning swim report: I arrived at Avila at 915 and was greeted with a low, marine layer or high fog... regardless of what it was called, it was thick and solid, and would not be burning off anytime soon. There was a slight breeze out of the south that created a chop on the water. The water temperature was 54+, which allowed me to enjoy a longer swim. A nice way to ease into the weekend.
