Wild and Windy!!

Relentless wind!

Relentless wind!

This wind has been something else.  I guess if you are a wind surfer, you would be loving it!  I could barely get this photo since I almost fell in thanks to the wind.  I guess you could say I was “desperate” to go out paddling…….so out in the wind I went!  It was blowing from the North so I paddled into it.  I paddled down almost to Cove  Park and the wind was not backing down.  It was bumpy!  I saw two turtles but couldn’t really enjoy them since I had to paddle every second to stay going in the direction I wanted to.  I vowed to stay out at least for an hour and then I paddled back to Kam I!  All the way back….to my back……I was hissed at by the breaking white caps that had engulfed me!  What a wild ride.  I took a walk since it was low tide and flat on the sad and then went swimming.  It was a breeze swimming down to the reef and the water is amazingly clear right now.  Swimming back was the challenge today!   Thank goodness the wind backed of for a few minutes so I could hoist my board successfully up on my racks!  I am all for the wind……just want it to go back to more normal conditions and blowing later on in the day and not constantly!  Despite the wind, it was a beautiful day!
