I got to Avila about 10:30. It was beautiful, clear sunny and just a bit cool from the wind off of the fog bank. The water was calm with very few birds, no seals or bait fish. I had done the City to the Sea 1/2 earlier and came by to stand in the water for a while. Chad and Brittany had also done the race and were going to come by but not swim. Duke and Sylvia were there and getting ready to jump in. Rob was swimming support on a Catalina Channel crossing attempt. The water felt very cold on my legs but I stayed in with my top half in the wind and my bottom half in the water until I started feeling chilled.
Rob, Ryan and I will be back to swim on Wednesday evening at 5:30.
