Conditions at 8 AM were familiar: clear and sunny with a slight offshore breeze, an air temperature of 38 degrees and a water temperature of 51. The largest waves were 3+ footers.
Jodi joined Niel and Duke. She is new to swimming at Avila but has been a competitive swimmer, done an Ironman Tri and run ultra distances, so once she gets this ocean thing figured out she'll be killing us. And today was her birthday so what a great way to celebrate by doing something new.
We did a couple of triangles, first clockwise and then counterclockwise. When we arrived at the end of the Avila Pier for the second time Jodi headed in while Duke and I completed retracing our route.
