Ok, ok… I know coffee comes from nature too, but it also happens to taste disgusting so I need to seek alternative sources of awakeness from time to time. Today I had an impulse to spend some time in salt water. At lunch I ran home and got a swimsuit then made my way to the beach in Pismo. According to the surf report the water was 52-54 degrees so we’ll split the difference and call it 53. It was cold but not unbearable… maybe I have my cold tolerance back… we’ll see. It’s fair to say that the people on the beach thought I was a crazy person.
Anyways I largely just played in the waves for like 15 minutes. I maybe swam 300m tops. I was hoping to catch at least one good wave body surfing but no such luck. With some better planning I think I could make this a regular lunchtime occurrence… hmmmm… I already have emergency goggles in my desk, all I need to add is a swimsuit and towel. I’ll give it another shot tomorrow and see if I can squeeze drive, swim, shower, eat into an hour.
