Almost Perfect!!!

Almost Perfect!

Almost perfect!

I say “almost perfect” because the day was much like yesterday, except that the wind was threatening already!  The ocean surface was bumpy and I was being pushed by some rolling swells all the way down to the boat ramp.  As I paddled into the boat ramp area, I counted about eleven people there already…eleven…..either in kayaks or on stand up boards!  I’m not sure I have ever seen that many people there at one time, but I think someone had a group of six or seven people all paddling together.  I almost turned around and left, but a turtle popped up near me, so I paddled over to it.  Then a second turtle appeared and I got to sit right between them!  I really was a bit anxious about the threatening wind after hearing there was still a high wind advisory until tonight, but a third turtle surfaced and beckoned me to stay!  After a few minutes, I decided to head back though.  Then the conditions got nice and glassy all of a sudden!  By the time I headed out of the Kam II area, the rolling swells calmed down and the ocean got perfect like yesterday.  Of course then I didn’t want to come in!  By the time I went swimming, the conditions were as perfect as yesterday and the visibility in the water was outstanding.  I saw a lot of fish down at the reef and I just wanted to keep on swimming since it was so nice!  When I came in, the wind threatened now and then, but it was still quite nice when I left the beach.  Right now it is windy as can be though!  I hope it’s nice tomorrow and I hope the wind cooperates!!
