WINDY!!!!

Crowded at Kalama Park!

Crowded at Kalama Park!

It was a beautiful day but it was windy from the start.  The wind was blowing from the north so I paddled north down to Kalama Park.  There were quite a few people there because there were some waves…..but I stayed just outside of Kalama.  I didn’t see any turtles today but the conditions were so bumpy so it was hard to see anything.  I wasn’t sure where all the bumpy swells were coming from but at times I felt like I was paddle surfing!  It was just one of those days that you have to paddle constantly or the wind decides where you are going to go!  There was a really high tide earlier in the morning and that had stirred up the water limiting visibility too.  I paddled south and then the wind changed and was blowing from the south!  The wind kept changing from one direction to the other and just couldn’t decide which way it wanted to blow.  I paddled for about an hour and then came in because the wind was not backing off.  The wind continued through my swim and water visibility wasn’t very good…….but the water is so warm!  Then just as I was sitting in the sun drying off…..the wind came in from the north in a frenzy and sand started blowing.  It was time to go home!   I hope the wind comes up later tomorrow……..we’ll see.
