Windy Surprise!

It started out a perfect day on Maui.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and was just visiting with my first turtle, and wham…..the wind whipped up in just a few seconds with white caps and chop!  I thought about how far down I was and how unpredictable the wind can be and thought it wise to head back.  What a workout!  I sat down on my board and just paddled slow and steady and when I hit the mid point of Kam II, the wind backed off.  There was just enough time for me to enjoy the challenge of the bumpy wind swells minus the white caps!  I made it back okay before the wind picked up again.  Yesterday I found myself feeling guilty about riding the wind in both directions, and today it was a total paddling workout!  Just goes to show that you never know what Mother Nature is going to throw at you, so you have to be ready.  Aloha!
