Chased Out By The Crud
It was a fine morning for a swim at Avila Beach except that the red tide was everywhere. The air temperature was 61°, the water was 62.5° and it was flat with just a bit of wind chop. Looking down from the pier the water looked red brown. I don't think that it shows in this photo but everywhere that there is a ripple on the water I could see red. Duke and I looked for a minute and decided to not get in. Tom did swim at 9 and said that it 'wasn't as bad as last week'.
There was also a 10,000 gallon sewage release into San Luis Creek late Monday and no testing had been done since then at the creek mouth or the beach.
