WINDY DAY!!!

Only one buddy today!

Only one buddy today!

Okay….so every day can’t be as exciting as yesterday with the dolphins…but every time it happens, I always hope it will happen the next day too!  I can’t help it!  The dolphins are so special and I never know when they will make their appearance and make my day.  Today was sunny but already windy.  I knew it when I went out!  The choppy conditions forced me to work on my skills and some days are just like that.  The wind was blowing from the south, so I paddled against it down to Kam III, and then turned around.  I had no intention of getting stuck all the way down at the boat ramp if the wind suddenly changed direction.  The only turtle today surprised me right out in front of Kam I again, in almost the same exact spot as yesterday!  I did stop for a while and hang with it as it swam around me and then dove under me and disappeared.  On the way back to Kam I, I had the wind at my back and enjoyed the push it gave me, but I had to concentrate because the rolling wind swells and white caps were behind me and would sneak up on me!  It stayed windy through my swim too, but at least the water was pretty clear down at the reef and I saw lots of fish.  There was even a unicorn fish down there eating the dead spots off the coral and I don’t usually see many of them at the reef.  I got the same push back on my swim and then once I came in and showered, the wind backed off some and it was nicer then than when I paddled earlier!  Figures!  I wonder what tomorrow will be like???
