Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Tom, Teresa and Niel got to enjoy flat and glassy conditions today. Avila Beach was gray, overcast, spitting and calm. The water temperature was down a degree or so to 15°C/59°F but the cool air and grayness made the water feel colder. The surf was knee high. The plan was to do two miles; down the buoy line to the east, to the edge of the kelp off of Fossil Point, to the end of the Avila Pier, over to the second crossbars on the CP Pier and then back along the west buoy line to the Start/Finish. Tom and Teresa didn't wait for me after we swam the buoy line.  

 I encountered some really stinky water off of the creek mouth and reversed course back to the buoy line. Luckily for Tom and Teresa they missed it, This was probably stagnant water from teh lagoon along the creek that has broken through the sand at the creek mouth.

This would be the only time that happened.  

Down at the edge of the kelp beds off of Fossil Point.

At the end of the Avila Pier.

We will swim Thursday at 9.
