I was out of town but Tom showed up and swam by himself. He sent this swim report:
It was another 'summer day' in Avila: air temps in the 70s, crowds, and tight parking. El Nino continues to behave like El Nada, and February is our new summer season. There was a bit of a wave, maybe 3-4 foot, and the water was a nice 56-57. Swimming today was Tom. He swam out, messed around in the waves, swam around kelp strand #38 (not to be confused with kelp strand #54 out by the reef buoy), and back to the waves where he messed around some more. He's not sure how far he swam or how long it took. He did report it was a good day, though.
