 If You Weren't There Today You Should Come Soon -  

We may not have a better swimming day this summer. I hope that I'm wrong but today it was 75° to 80° at Avila Beach, the water was 62° with 1 to 2 foot surf and great visibility.  I do not know where our usual brown red summer murk with 2 foot visibility is but this is nice.  There was a 1+ foot short (4 seconds) period swell out of the SW and no wind. Add in some fun clouds to look at and too keep it from getting too hot and conditions were just about perfect.  
Hillary was back from meetings in Germany and floating in Swiss rivers so she joined me. She said that it was incredibly hot in Europe with little A/C outside of commercial buildings.
We started out to do a couple of big triangles but the first time at the end of the Avila Pier we decided to swim over to the Cal Poly Pier, out to the end of the pier and back to the Avila Pier.   
The short period swell swam more like wind chop and put up a lot of resistance when swimming any direction between south and west. 

Out at the end of the Cal Poly Pier with Avila Beach in the background. 

Sorry, I forgot Tom, again. Tom swam early and probably went over to the CPP.

I'll swim on Tuesday morning at 7AM.
