Day 1 in San Diego - a smashing success

Well, I made it.  No, not across the channel(s) but I made it to the west coast - one step closer to swimming my first channel.  Today (now yesterday), I had a long (5 hour) flight from Virginia to San Diego, CA where my friend Anders picked me up curbside and quickly hauled my carcass off to La Jolla Cove.  It was a marvelous day.  The winds were picking up, sun shining (mostly), and the chop was very English.  We swam about a mile and a half or so through chop and a slight swell.  Anders might consider it a bit longer since he knows the area well.  Regardless, it was a great outing.  The swim, shrimp quesadilla, and beer weighed me down so I crashed at 10pm PST.  Man was I exhausted.
