WINDY DAY!!

 

BUMPY RIDE!

BUMPY RIDE!

Well, unlike the last couple of days, the day started out windy and stayed windy!  It was an hour of paddling in windy, choppy conditions!  It was also a bit overcast and that didn’t help.  The wind was blowing from the south so I paddled into it down to the end of Kam II and then turned around and paddled north down to Kalama Park.  There was a current pushing from the north and bumpy swells were constant.  I saw one turtle cruising by but not much else!  In fact, it was impossible to stop and just enjoy today because the wind was trying to turn me in circles.  It is always good to get out on the ocean…..but today was just one of those paddling frenzy days!  It was the same for my swim…..lots of wind and bumps…..

Choppy!

Choppy!

But suddenly when I was getting ready to leave the beach……the wind backed off and it was perfect at noon!   Go figure!

Now it's perfect?

Now it’s perfect?
