Avila was the place to be today. It was warm and sunny with a nice breeze to make it comfortable. The water temperature was 56 with some chop building up from the wind. The lifeguards told us that there was a pod of dolphins not far from where we were swimming but nobody saw them.
Jeff and Robin got in early and swam about a mile along the buoy line. Sylvia and Peter did their own swims. Niel, Doug, Duke, Rick, Tom, Damon and Micah swam over to the Cal Poly Pier and back to the end of the Avila Pier, where Rick, Doug and Damon came in along the pier while Niel, Tom, Duke and Micah swam to the last buoy on the Pismo side and in along the buoys to our starting point and in. That was just a few strokes short of 1.5 miles.
