Windy Day!!



It was a windy day today.  The ocean was not calm but I went out paddling anyway.  The wind was blowing from the south and west and was constantly changing.  I didn’t trust it enough to paddle down to the boat ramp!  I paddled down past Kam 2 and then it got bumpy so I turned and paddled north.  I went all the way down to Kalama Park and the wind kept backing off and starting up again!  I only saw one turtle and it didn’t stay long.  A paddling friend told me there were some dolphins out farther but the wind conditions didn’t make me want to venture out that far!  I had to paddle the whole time because the wind wanted to turn me around. It was a good workout!  I knew that the wind was going to get crazy at some point, but it did stay nice while I swam and it was still pretty nice when I left the beach.  I look forward to a break in the wind so I can go down to my favorite place. I miss all my turtles!  At least it was a beautiful day though……..and I’m very pleased to be paddling again!
