Windy and Bumpy!!!

Nice Sunday Sunset!

Nice Sunday Sunset!

Yesterday I slept in so no paddling,  but at sunset, the ocean was calm and nice.  Well this morning when I arrived at the beach, the wind was up and the ocean was bumpy!  Totally different from last evening!  I paddled anyway, hoping that the wind might back off, but I paddled against it all the way down to the boat ramp.  Down at the boat ramp, the ocean was still bumpy and the wind was not backing off, but I managed to visit with two turtles.  After that, I was concerned about the wind, so I paddled back.  The wind was at my back going that way, but the loopy swells were coming from the north. I promised I would not bad mouth the wind because it is blowing the VOG away…… so I didn’t!  Ahemmmm……well at least all of Haleakala was clear today!  Just as I was coming into Kam I, the wind backed off and the ocean got calmer.  My swim was nice, but the visibility is still bad, so I turned around before the reef.  When the visibility is kicked up like that I spook at every little shadow when I’m swimming (especially with the recent shark attacks…)!  The day was beautiful, though, and not bad for December 10th either…..I’ll take it!!!!!
