Wednesday Evening, April6,2011
Rob and I met at 5:30 this evening for our Wednesday after work day swim. There was a light wind and a current from the east to the west and a small swell from the SW. The water temperature was 57. The waves were 2' to 3' with some occasional 4+ footers. We decided to do something different; we swam out to the first (and only) buoy on the right side of the pier. From there we did not head down the buoy line but headed straight to the Poly Pier to our usual stopping point about a third of the way out from the shore. From there we swam to the end of the Avila Pier and in along the pier to the beach. With the wind, current and chop running in different directions each leg offered different conditions. As were were coming in the surf had built up to 4' to 5' so we got to play a bit getting in. We were in the water for 40 minutes and covered 2.4K.
