Beautiful But Windy!!

Nice, but windy!

Nice, but windy!

It was a beautiful day, but it started out windy.  I talked to another paddler who had just come in and he said it had been that way all morning.  Well, I was there, so I decided to go out anyway!  It was really windy too, and choppy!  The wind was blowing from the south so I decided to paddle into it for a while.  The ocean was so bumpy!  I got down to Kam III and then turned around.  All of a sudden, the wind completely stopped, but it was still choppy.  I could only imagine that this was because the wind was blowing really strong way out and sending the bumpy water towards shore.  It wasn’t long before the wind returned and I just paddled north.  I got down to Cove Park and the wind backed off again, but it was still choppy!  The clouds were coming over too and that made the water dark, so I couldn’t see anything.  No turtles for today!  The wind came in again and this time it stayed in, so I paddled in white caps back to Kam I.  It was so bumpy!  Just as I got in, the wind got crazy,  blowing sand and umbrellas, but I went for my swim anyway.  I swam into the wind, going north, and then enjoyed a push back.  Some days it is just about the work out……and today was one of those days!!
