Today the water temperature in Avila was 57°, two degrees higher than Thursday, which was two degrees higher than it has been in the last month. Avila was also grey and the air temperature was 57° but it didn't seem too important. There was a but of wind and a small current and swell out of the SE.
I got in at 9:30. Leslie, Grace and Theresa were just finishing up their swim. The water was warm enough that they were playing in the waves.
I had decided on this route before hand. I liked the idea of the six 600 to 700M legs back and forth between the piers. It turned out to be just short of 5K. The warm water was very relaxing. I am still wearing my 3.4/4.5 surf suit and never thought about the water temperature.
I spoke to Jodi near the second crossbars on the Cal Poly Pier. She was already at 5K+ meters and heading back to the Avila Pier.
Duke, Jodi, myself and whoever wants to join us will jump in at 7:30 Sunday morning.
