It was COLD today.
On the way to the C.P. Pier the water temperature dropped. I kept wondering if it was just me, but when I caught up to the group everyone said that it was extra cold. I got a temperature reading at the C.P. Pier of 9.5°C = 49°F, so it wasn't just me. And then there were colder spots on the way to the end of the pier, so that would have been 48°+/-.
My record low water temperature reading at Avila Beach was a 47° many years ago. The low 50's is the usual bottom.
We didn't spend much time hanging about talking but kept moving. The wind had strengthened making the inshore swim along the C.P. Pier a bit of extra work.
We spoke to Leslie at the showers. She had swum by herself down towards Fossil Point and was really cold. She sent this nice picture of the break at Avila.
Theresa and Leslie will swim tomorrow morning but I'm not sure at what time.
I'll swim Tuesday morning at 8 and Thursday at 8:30 to 9, depending on how my morning goes.
