Sunday, May 12th, 2024


Tom Israel and I swam to the Avila Rock today. It looked like the water was pretty mellow out there but we had to give up that idea before we were past the end of the Avila Pier. The wind was changing from mile to strong and gusty and the water was getting choppy. We had a good swim out there and back, swallowing some water along the way.  The wind was out of the SW so we had a push over the right shoulder on the way out and slaps in the face on the way back.  It was over cast and felt cooler than 55° on the beach.  As the wind picked up it made a hole in the clouds around Avila so it was sunny when we got out. 
Tom tried to get in without his goggles and did manage to leave my camera and thermometer in my bag so I do not have any photos or a 'real' water temperature for today. I spoke briefly with Tom Lorish. He had swum out to and around the Poly Pier, had a great time and his toes thought the water was 50°.
On our swim Tom Israel and I agreed that the water was in the low 50's, not 54°, probably not 53°, but definitly more comfortable than 50°.

It is supposed to be nice this coming week with fog or low clouds in the mornings and sunny afternoons, so I'm planning on swimming Tue., Thurs., and Sat. at 7AM and Sunday at 11.
