Our fall friend is still around, I didn't get a report from a lifeguard but this is probably the same fish still hanging around. We also had a humpback whale about a half mile offshore towards Avila Rock.
It was gray, cool and calm with glassy water. The red tide is also a fall occurrence and is here for a while. Water conditions were much worse on the west side of the pier. The water temperature was 14°C/57.2°F and felt colder.
Swimming today were Brittany, Tom, Niel, Teresa and Grace. If the big fish sign hadn't been up I would have liked to swim the length of the C.P. Pier but the end of that pier is on the big fish zone and there are plenty of opportunities to do the same distance and to stay closer to home. We swam the same route as Thursday, down the buoy line to the creek, back along the buoys then out and back along the length of the Avila Pier and down and back along the buoys on the east side. Tom and Brittany went in at that point. Niel, Teresa and Grace went back around the end of the Avila Pier and down to the creek mouth and back along the buoys. Other than the cooler water and the red tide swimming conditions were flat with no current.
