Windy and a Friendly Turtle!!

It was windy again this morning!  The wind must be waiting until I get there lately….. But I decided to go for it anyway.  I was hoping the wind might back off like it did yesterday but no such luck!  It was a bumpy ride but it was great to be out on my board.  I paddled north with the wind at my back and I looked down and there was a turtle swimming right under me!  I paddled along side the turtle for a few minutes and then it surfaced to say “Hi”!  I can’t believe I got this photo because it was the only one I took!

Morning buddy!

Bumpy!

Bumpy!

i ended up paddling for an hour and all I did was paddle in the bumpy conditions….. No time to sit and relax!  The wind stayed constant even during my swim and the ocean is so warm.  The wind did make it a lot cooler today since it has been so hot.  It was a besutiful day out after the rain again last night…..
