Gerry and I swam today. The early fog burned off before 11 and left it calm and sunny at Avila. The surf was 1 to 2 foot, the water was very clear, and about 58 degrees (my new thermometer is in transit and will be on duty soon). There were no signs of any bait fish or birds rafting on the water. There were three seals playing in the surf. There were small wind waves, about 6 to 8 inches, moving toward the beach from the SW. We swam the buoy line end to end and a bit more, probably about 1.25 miles, and were in the water for 40 minutes. The swimming conditions were very comfortable with the little waves just enough of a ripple to mess with my breathing and make it interestnig. It was nice and warm and relaxing next to the wall after we got out.
