Sunday, August 11th, 2019

The fog was in at 10:30 but clearing, promising calm and flat swimming conditions. The water temperature was 59.5 with no sign of red tide.

Swimming today were Niel, Heidi, Augustine, Tom, Duke, Maria, Sara, Ben, Stephanie, Sue and her sister Kiri (?, can't read my writting) 
Augustine is from Fresno (yes? Visalia?). He and his wife drove over to visit the coast and so he could get in the water. They are from Argentina. His company moved them to Fresno 6 months ago where he works for the cattle industry.
Sue and her sister are from London, England. Sue is frequently in the area and drops in whenever she is here.

The plan was to swim down the buoy line to the left and beyond the fourth buoy to Fossil Point, back to the 4th buoy, to the end of the Avila Pier and in to the beach, which would be about 1.5 miles. 

Ben would hang with their daughter while Sara was swimming and them go out on his own once Sara was back.

 Kiri, Augustine, Stephanie, Sue, Maria. Tom is behind Maria. At the start.

At the 4th buoy,. I can't identify anyone.

 Sara, Heidi or Maria, Duke, Kiri, Niel, Maria or Heidi, Sue, Stephanie, Augustine
at Fossil Point. Wonderful swimming conditions.

Augustine enjoyed himself and I expect that he will be back as often as he can.

I had 1.53 miles on my watch when I got out. 
 Maria, Sara and Heidi did a more out and back route for 1.3 miles.

Craig Bowman and I are going to swim Wednesday evening, in the water at 5. Does anyone else want to jump in?
