There were about 300 Harley-Davidson motorcycles in Avila this morning, and it was not what you might think. They all looked like hardware store managers and school teachers. Anyway, it was either sunny or cloudy form one moment to the next, the air temperature was 50 and the water temperature was the same as last week at 54. It was flat with no wind, a few small waves and no chop. I counted about 3 pelicans, a dozen other birds and no other sea life. Sylvia and Rob were at the Masters meet in Long Beach. I'm getting over a cold and thought that a swim would feel good so I swam by myself. I stayed in closer to shore so that i could bail out if my energy faded. I swam the buoy line and felt much better for having gone in.
