The weather has changed our plans for an early swim on New Years Day. We had planned on jumping in the water at 9 on Thursday, HOWEVER, the weather forecast is for frost that morning with temperatures around 30 degrees, which is too cold for me! So, let's plan on swimming later in the day at 2:30. It should be about 50 degrees and sunny by then, still wintery but not frozen, with water temperatures in the upper 50's. Avila will be crowded but hopefully most of the Polar Bear swimmers from noon will have left and there will be some parking. As always, our swim plan and route will be determined on the beach by current conditions.
