58 degrees, not much wind and whales!

Swimming today were Rob 2, Sylvia, Yvonne, Rick, Amy and Dale.  On the beach soaking up the sun were Niel, Rob, Dave and Gerry.  Allison and Beth were out kayaking and  accompanied the swimmers.  The group did the triangle going clockwise.  It is a good thing they had the kayaks along because a couple of jet skis came way too close at high speed. Where's a harpoon when you need one? The whales showed up about 3/4 of the way towards 
Avila Rock when the group was getting in the water.  There were perhaps 3 of them and they were working slowly to the west.  You could easily see their spouts and backs when they surfaced.  45 minutes later when the group was getting out of the water the whales were off of the end of the Avila Pier.  Allison and Beth went out and were able to get a close view.

We will be swimming Wednesday evening at 5:30.
