It was overcast, gray, calm, flat and glassy this morning.
And a very low tide. Usually, you will swim over those rocks to the right of Avila Rock.
Tom and Teresa getting in.
We have moved into summer conditions; warm water (way to show us up Teresa), about 60 degrees today, gray morning skies, maybe even spitting, opaque water and all of the food chain showing up, including the landlord.
On Tuesday when Hillary and I were out near the end of the Cal Poly Pier, some life guards on SUP's not far from us were following a 10' great white shark. We learned this after we got out. The beach is now posted for 5 days with a caution to "Avoid Contact With Marine Life". That sounds like a good idea.
For lack of a better swim plan we decided to stay more or less along the buoy line today.
We split up with each of us finding our own parth back and forth along the buoys.
This is at the forth buoy on the left (east) side of the Avila Pier.
That's Tom and the little green marble over his left shoulder is Teresa's buoy.
Looking back to the Avila Pier.
No swell, current, chop, wind or big fish, and warm water.
I did two and a half lengths of the buoy line.
Our next swim will be Saturday morning at 9:30.
