It was too hot to walk barefoot on the beach but plenty cold in the water today! The nearest ocean buoy was running about 50 degrees but it was probably closer to 52 at the beach. Swimmers were myself, Duke and Sylvia. Duke and I swam to the end of the pier, over to the Poly Pier, back to the 1 buoy on that side of the Avila Pier, and then under and back to the beach which was good for about 1.3 miles. Sylvia did her own thing but spent about the same amount of time in the water as we did. Along our route Duke and I found some really cold patches. Midway between the Poly Pier and the Avila Pier on our way back we hit a patch that felt like a solid 4 degree drop, it was pretty brutal... luckily the sun was shining with reckless abandon this afternoon!
We'll be back out in the water on Wednesday after work around 5:30!
