Lots of VOG!!

Vog!

Vog!

Yesterday a south swell popped up and since I had a head ache, I decided not to go out.  Today the swell was still happening but the wind was not blowing so I went out paddling.  There were lots of waves!  Outside, the ocean was glassy though and I cruised over plenty of glassy swells on the way down to the boat ramp.  It was a beautiful day except the vog is creeping in without the trade winds.  Down at the boat ramp I saw two turtles but they didn’t stay around to visit.  I paddled back in nice conditions but kept wondering about going in……. would I make it in without getting hit by a wave?  Well, I hit a nice lull in the waves and made it it just fine!  I swam out behind the waves and it was nice but the visibility is being affected by the swell.  With the exception of the vog creeping in…. it was a beautiful day!!

Trade winds, where are you?
