Kind of an odd day at Avila but a nice day for swimming and eating. It was gray over the beach at Avila and sunny a quarter of a mile inland and over at Pismo. What wind there was had changed from its typical summer direction of out of the NW and was coming from the west and southwest, holding the fog over Avila. With the fog it was very calm, with no chop and no sign of the 'big' southern swell that had been predicted. The water temperature was 57, the water had good visibility. There were numerous fishermen on the pier and seals and a nice pod of dolphins along the buoy line. On the beach we had Sylvia, Niel and Kris, Rob, Chad, Dale and Al, Dave Van Mouwerik, Rick and Rhonda Marina and Pete. We had 8 swimmers. Nobody was feeling like hammering it so we swam both sides of the the buoy line in about 30 minutes and headed for our pot luck lunch on the beach. The fair ranged from shrimp through broccoli salad to homemade apple pie with vanilla ice cream. We probably should of stayed in the water longer.
Rob and I will be swimming Wednesday at 5:30.
