Sunday, November 12th, 2023


We enjoyed wonderful swimming conditions today. The air temperature was 71°, there was a light breeze and unlimited sunshine. The water was 53° with some colder spots, very clear and a beautiful blue green color.

Tom L. was out there early showing the otters how to do the backstroke. Jim stopped by and said hi as we were getting ready and went ahead and did his own swim. Duke did his out, over and back in route. Niel, Jamie, Paula and Ilene swam the east buoy line, to the end of the Avila Pier and to the end of the Poly Pier. Ilene and Paula were looking for 2000 M and came back from the end of the Poly Pier. Niel and Jamie wanted about 3600M so they went in along the Poly Pier to the second crossbars and over to the end of the Avila Pier before coming in.

There was a small to medium wind chop so the legs from the end of the buoy line to the Poly Pier got progressively rougher and pushy. Coming in along the pier was a nice break before swimming across the chop on the way back to the Avila Pier.

Afterwards it was so nice and relaxing on the beach that Jamie, Jim, Duke and Niel kept trading stories until 1:45.

I'll swim Tuesday. The predicted rain is making Thursday looks iffy.
