Beautiful Day for Paddling!!

Great day!

Great day!

I missed paddling yesterday due to an appliance delivery……so today I was itching to go!  It was a beautiful day but the wind was blowing from the south.  Just as I paddled out, I ran into a paddling friend I had not seen for a while so we chatted for a few minutes and then I headed south.  I paddled against the wind all the way down to the boat ramp.  I spotted my first turtle just outside of Kam III as it popped right in front of me!  There were some swells rolling into Kam III and the lifeguards had posted the red flags and the wind wasn’t letting up.  I saw two more turtles and then decided to head back.  The wind continued to blow from the south and I ran into another paddling friend outside of Kam II.  We chatted for a few minutes and she spotted a turtle!  Suddenly, the wind backed off and the ocean calmed down but I wanted to swim before the wind came back up.  My friend paddled south and I headed back to Kam I.  My swim was refreshing but the swell has the water visibility messed up.  I couldn’t see anything!  I swam towards the reef but turned around and swam back.  It sure was a beautiful day though!!
