Avila Beach was sunny and 45° at 8 o'clock. There was a light offshore breeze that wound up developing some legs as the morning progressed. The water temperature was 54°. I took a chance on the water quality so soon after a rain and hedged my betts by staying away from the mouth of SLO Creek at the west end of the beach. I got in about 8:15.
A nice welcome back to the ocean.
I didn't see Tom but he said that he was running late and would be swimming.
No rain is predicted for the next week so I'll be back at 8 on Saturday and 11 on Sunday.
Saturday is New Year's Day so we should bring snacks for afterwards.
