Fickle Wind!!

Gorgeous!

Gorgeous!

I am finally beating this cold and feeling better.  I missed the beach yesterday, so I really wanted to go paddling today.  I got a parking spot right away and got out as quick as I could, but the wind decided to come up and make the ocean choppy!  I went out anyway.  I paddled in the chop down to the end of Kam 2 trying to decide what the wind was going to do.  The ocean just got more choppy!  I turned around and paddled north into the wind and chop.  By the time I got down to Kalama Park, the wind backed off and it got really perfect!  It was really nice!  The turtles played hide and seek, with none of them staying on the surface long enough for me to get a photo.  I couldn’t believe how the ocean changed and became so calm.  I really didn’t want to come in!

Perfect!

Perfect!

Just as I came in, the wind picked up again but fifteen minutes later it got perfect again!  This is how it was all morning.  I didn’t trust the fickle wind enough to paddle down to the boat ramp, but it was really nice down at Kalama Park!  It got very nice for my swim too, and I enjoyed how clear the water is right now.  What a beautiful Maui day!

When it got perfect, it was really perfect!

When it got perfect, it was really perfect!
