You will find trip reports by Lloyd Johnson here.
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.This page last updated January 4, 2010 by Lloyd Johnson. Send Lloyd email.

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.
