There was no rain but no swimming at Avila Beach today. It was overcast with occasional weak sun, no wind or rain. The water was clean and 58 degrees. When I first arrived there were some 5'+ waves and a very messy ocean surface with little chops going in several directions. At 11 the surf had laid down, the water was getting glassy and the swimming conditions were very good but no one else had shown up to swim. Last weekend was the last one for the lifeguards for the season and none of the numerous dogs on the beach looked like particularly strong swimmers or I would have gone solo.
There are no more Wednesday evening swims so unless Rob and I get a nooner group going I'll be back next Sunday.
