Back Out There!!

Bumpy day!

Bumpy day!

After the wind finally backed down……then a swell came up causing shore break the last few days.  Now with the easterly winds, the vog is creeping back in too!  I really needed to get out there today though.  I got out a bit late and the lifeguards had the red flags posted, but I didn’t see any troublesome shore break.  It was low tide so I thought that could be the reason.  As I paddled out, a paddling friend was waiting for me so we paddled north to Kalama Park.  Then we turned around and decided to paddle to Kam III.  Kam II or III did not have any red flags out.  The ocean was bumpy……not at all glassy…..but the wind was cooperating!  We took a chance and paddled all the way to the boat ramp.  We spotted several turtles, but none stayed up long enough for me to get a photo today.  We paddled back because the tide was going to be coming in soon and that could bring some shore break waves.  It was a bumpy ride coming in, but I got in okay.  It was a nice day for a walk, but the water is still murky from the prior days of a swell.  Instead of my usual swim, I went out and did some back strokes as the bumps pushed me along.  It wasn’t the best paddling or swimming day, but it was still a beautiful day!
