Beautiful Day!!

Nice day!

Nice day!

The weekend was crazy windy!  But this morning looked promising.  I headed down to the beach and the wind had not come in yet, so I went out paddling.  I headed north because I really don’t trust the wind right now, but the breeze that was blowing was actually blowing from the south!  I paddled as far as Charley Young Beach and turned around and headed towards Kam 2.  The ocean was very wavy!  I notice that my balance is not what is should be as this darn hip gets worse, so I turned at Kam 2 and paddled in.  I watched carefully today coming in because of course I didn’t want a repeat of Friday!   I got in okay and my husband was waiting on the shore to help me.  It’s really a help that he carried my board down to the water and carried it up the beach for me when I came in!  I sure hope I can keep on paddling up to the time I have my hip surgery…..but I don’t know.  Everything is such an effort these days that even simple day to day chores exhaust me.  My swim was wonderful though!  Swimming is the only time I feel no pain so I really enjoy that.  The ocean actually calmed down as the morning got later….but then the wind started to come up as I left the beach.  This year has been a year of strange ocean, water, and wind conditions!  I am just happy I am still able to go to the beach.  I will be very glad when my hip is fixed and I can start moving normal again!
