La Jolla Cove’s Cooling Down…

The summer swimming at The Cove was “epic” as we had many clear days, lots to see & the temperature’s hovered about 70! However, the temp has recently dropped to about 63 in The Cove & 65/66 on the outside. Get out there & enjoy it before it drops even further; & for those of you swimming the “La Jolla Rough Water” this weekend get out there & get acquainted with the cooler temps. Even though it’s much cooler, the water’s fairly clear today!
