After work I went down to the beach and took a long, extended swim around the pier. It was flat and beautiful. Warmer. About 60, maybe warmer. Waves 1-3 feet, good shape, surfable all along the beach, spread out. Lots of beachgoers and surfers. As usual, I was the only ocean swimmer. I have Oceanside beyond the breakers to myself. Wow!
Wet suit still, no gloves, fins.
Here's some pictures of the scene.
