Offshore winds and warm temperatures in the 70's made Avila Beach a great place to be today. It was almost hot on the beach if you were out of the wind. I measured a surprising water temperature from the pier of an almost normal 54.5 degrees.
Swimming today were Niel, Tom, Heidi, Maria, Duke and Gary. Gary swims with a group in Ventura Sunday mornings at 7. They go bareback and do two miles.
The water felt warmer than it has but not exactly bammly.
The acclimation period was shorter.
That is Heidi Duke and Maria on their way to the end of the pier.
Tom behind that stubborn drop of water.
