WINDY!!!

Windy!

Windy!

It was a beautiful day and I really wanted to go paddling.  It seemed a bit windy but I wanted to go out anyway until I started to take my board off of my car and it was blowing around!  I could honestly see major white caps out not too far and the ocean surface wasn’t calm……so I strapped my board back on my car.  It ended up being a walk and swim kind of day!  The tide was low so it was definitely good conditions for walking the beach.  The wind blew in and out most of the morning.  My swim was bumpy but I did make it down to the reef and saw quite a few fish busily swimming about.  The swim back was more challenging!  The water visibility was not too bad either considering the recent swell.  The wind got stronger and I didn’t end up staying too long at the beach because it was actually chilly!  I am not kidding, it was chilly and it’s almost mid March!  I was glad to climb into my warm car (which is highly unusual….)  and as soon as I got home…….I fixed a nice hot cup of cocoa to warm me up!  It doesn’t feel like Spring on Maui today!
