Sunday, March 8th, 2020

I was out of town for Sunday's swim so Tom and Heidi covered for me with a wright up and photos.


Following what now accounts for a major storm in SLO County, Sunday at Avila cleaned up to be an extraordinary day – deep blue skies with the scattered remaining storm clouds off to the east and west, crispy clear clear air with amazing visibility in every direction, including in the water.  Beautiful.  Swimming today was Heidi, Hillary, Theresa, and Tom.  Hillary, as you can see in the picture, has upped the game for documenting the swims and conditions.  Her companion vessel, the USS Hillary, was equipped with a Go Pro and a temperature monitoring little ducky!  We’re looking forward to this vessel being captained by some choice figurines. 😊 

As a precaution, our swim route was exclusively on the eastside – we swam out to the end of the Avila Pier then around the reef buoy and back to mid-point in the pier and in – just about a mile (1,743 yards to be precise).  The water temp ranged from 54-56, although the little ducky had it a bit higher at 59 (not sure the duck knows what its doing).  All in all, a wonderful day of swimming.
