Nice Day and Windy!!

Well hi there!

Well hi there!

It was a nice day today but it was already windy.  It was strange though, because I couldn’t really see any white caps out there, yet the water wasn’t calm either.  Yesterday I stayed home to care for a sore neck, so I decided to paddle north and stay closer to home in case the wind got stronger.  The wind was blowing onshore…..so that made me have to paddle just mostly on one side because it was pushing me towards shore.  Down at Kalama Park, a turtle was waiting for me and I sure was glad!  The last day I was out paddling,  I only saw two turtles, and today it was two turtles again!  The first turtle popped its head up three times and floated by my board, but the second turtle didn’t stick around.  Then I turned around and paddled south and the wind continued to blow onshore, forcing me to paddle almost exclusively on the left side all the way down to Kam II.  Of course, that didn’t make my neck feel any better!  As I turned around at Kam II and started back, I ran across my husband swimming! Then I got in okay but the wind did not let up, so swimming was a bit challenging too.  The visibility down at the reef was minimal, but I did see some fish including a Unicorn fish!  It was a nice day but I hope it isn’t windy tomorrow morning!
