Niel, Rob, Amy and John Hampsey swam today. The water was 53 degrees. It was calm with on a small swell and an occasional set of 2 to 3 foot waves. There seemed to be a lot of gulls around but not much other wildlife. We swam out and left, down to the end of the sea wall which is about where the buoy line ends. We turned and swam to the end of the Avila Pier and came in along the pier to our starting point. We covered a little over .6 of a mile.
My gps didn't start when we did so there is no route map today.
Rob and I ran into Alan Raul and Cary Geihs out on the pier. They have organized a Avila Beach New Year's Day Polar Bear Swim. Check out the flyer.
We'll talk next Sunday about what we want to do for a New Year's Day swim.
