Nice Paddling!

So nice!

So nice!

I didn’t get out until almost ten o’clock today!  I almost didn’t go because I was so late, but when I got down to the beach……it was so nice!  A friend told me that earlier there had been shore break due to a very high tide and that the water visibility wasn’t very good.  By ten o’clock, the ocean had calmed with the tide going out and the wind was light.  The paddling conditions were glassy!  Since it was so late, I decided not to go down to the boat ramp.  I paddled north towards Kalama Park.  It was so nice out on the water!  The closer I got to Kalama Park, the more waves I could see breaking and the people surfing were very happy.  I stayed south of the break and saw three turtles.  On my way back to Kam I, I got visited by two turtles…….none of the turtles surfaced long enough to get a photo.  I was happy to get five turtles for the day though!  I paddled on down to Kam II and then turned around.  The wind never came in!  My swim was calm but the visibility was not good.  When it is like that, I really hate seeing any shadows!  I don’t hang out at the reef either……better to be safe than sorry.  It was a beautiful day!  I hope tomorrow is nice too…..

A friend sent me this.....pretty cool.  It was done from a photo she took of me.....
