Better late….than not at all!


I got out so late today!  I slept a full hour while my alarm was going off so I wasn’t sure I would get out today.  My husband went down to the beach and text me that it was nice, so I got my rear in gear and headed down!  It was nearly ten o’clock by the time I went out!  The wind was already blowing so I paddled into it.  Down at Kalama Park I got one photo and it ended up a bit fuzzy, but at least I saw one turtle there and one out from Kam I.  Any turtles are better than no turtles I always say! 

Heading north!

Heading north!

The wind continued to blow from the north, so I turned around and paddled south.  I got down to Kam 2 and then I started to see some white caps, so I turned around.  Just before I paddled in…..a turtle surprised me, swimming by me, so I turned north and paddled with it for a while!  I got in before it got completely blown out and most of my swim was okay until the end, when the wind picked up strength.  It still is not clear down by the reef so I didn’t stay very long there.  It was quite a beautiful day…..with a hint of Fall in the air.  Maui no ke oi!
