Diablo was leaving as I was arriving and he gave me this valuable advice:  "stay on top of the water."

This unprecedented year and these unprecedented times have brought out an unprecedented number of morning swimmers, and today was no exception.

The water inside the rock piles and along the shore was pretty darn cold, but if you went further out, it was probably mid 60's... at least in the top few inches.  This week's temperature rollercoaster caused many to leave their wetsuits at home, so there were a few reluctant skin swimmers today.

As usual, people swam varying distances.

When we got back to the beach, there were men, pickup trucks, an ATV, and boats.  Dragonfly ascertained that they had something to do with checking out the water intake pipe.

There is always something exciting happening on the beach.
