At 7:30 on Sunday morning in Avila Beach it was 38 degrees, sunny with a mild offshore wind. The surf was 2 foot and the water temperature was down a degree to 50. Getting in this morning were Duke, Jodi, Niel and Tom. Tom usually swims at Olde Port Beach. We all felt that one degree drop in water temperature.

We were looking for a mile and a half or so and worked out this route.

San Luis Obispo Creek carried extremely high concentrations of bacteria during last weeks heavy rains and is still testing a several times the state's level for safe contact. The Blue Water Task Force water quality data is at https://bwtf.surfrider.org/explore/34
The water near the mouth of the creek has had a funny, sort of metallic taste. I don't know what that is but I'm avoiding that area.
I'll swim Tuesday morning at 8 and Thursday morning at 9.
