Windy, then Perfect!

So I didn’t get out until about 9 a.m. this morning, and it was overcast, windy and looked stormy.  I needed to paddle, so I went out anyway.  I paddled against the Kona wind all the way down to the boat ramp.  Yes, I was taking a big chance with the wind since it can change directions in a few seconds (and it has!), but I went anyway!  It took me awhile to get there and when I arrived only one kayaker was leaving the area and I had the place all to myself.  Well, it kind of figured, it was windy and looking stormy, so no one else was out there!  Well, I had not sat very long when the wind picked up and produced some white caps.  I decided that as long as the wind was still Kona, I had better take advantage of that and make my way back!  It gave me a good push all the way back, but I never saw any turtles or anything.  I did enjoy the workout, though.  I paddled in and before I knew it, the wind backed off completely!  My swim was great and the water remains super clear, so I enjoyed the fish down at the reef and rocks.  I noticed that the coral is looking very healthy down there and it is drawing a lot more fish.  Thankfully people are paying attention and NOT stepping on the coral!  It was almost completely ruined, but now it is definitely coming back.  The day stayed semi overcast and was extremely comfortable, just a really nice day!
