Sunday, August 18, 2019

Today's swim was out to the end of the Avila Pier, over to the end of the Cal Poly Pier, in along the Poly Pier to the third set of cross bracing and then in to the Avila Pier and our starting place for a distance of 1.55 miles.

It was gray and spitty in San Luis Obispo so I came prepared for damp and cold on the beach. It was surprisingly warm in Avila Beach and 

there was a hole in the overcase and some blue sky. 
The water temperature was 58 to 60 degrees, there was no wind or swell, so we had very nice swimming conditions. 

That is Duke, Margariet, AnneMarie and Heidi.
We had three female swimmers in green caps last week and I couldn't 
tell them apart so Heidi decided to distinguish herself today 

Today's group was Niel, Duke, Heidi, Sara, Margaret, Tom, AnneMarie and Addie. Addie is a new grad student at Cal Poly. I hope I spelled her name correctly. She is from New Jersey and was very happy to find the group and Avila Beach.

Wednesday Evening Swim:
We got skunked last week, nobody could make it and the lifeguards had spotted an 11' white shark near the Cal Poly Pier earlier in the day, so there would have been no swimming if we had shown up.
How about this week? Niel and Margaret are in for in the water at 5:30.
