Don't read too much into my reports.  Gaps in coverage sometimes indicate bad weather, but also reflect my schedule.  I'm a strong swimmer and generally don't notice currents unless they are very strong.  I'm not a surfer and don't really know how to measure a wave.  Nobody believes my temperature readings.  They all come from a Suunto Mosquito dive computer.

I hiked down the Burro Trail, barefoot.  Once at the bottom, I undressed and set up my bulletin board near the trailhead.

I headed north to my usual spot near Valentine Slide.  I raised my club flag and put another bulletin board under it.

I set up an umbrella, but only used it to hang food and swim gear.

I went swimming once.  I tried some body surfing on the way back to shore.  I didn't really catch anything.

I packed and headed to the trail about 4pm where I dressed, collected my bulletin boards and hiked up.
