Beautiful, Breezy and a Turtle!!

Buddy!

Buddy!

it was another nice day!  A bit overcast and breezy but still very nice.  I am trying to take advantage of any days I can get out paddling!  The wind was already blowing on shore…. But the wind forecast was for South wind, so I paddled to the boat ramp.  I figured that if the wind came up and was blowing from the south…… I could catch a ride on my way back.  This  doesn’t always work out though but today it did!  Just as I got to the boat ramp the wind kicked up from the south just as predicted.  There was already  another paddle boarder there and two snorkelers……. But when I saw white caps forming…… I headed back!  Just as I was passing Kam 3, a turtle popped up to visit!  Above is a photo of it.  I paddled back being pushed by the wind and white caps!  It got pretty choppy…..

Choppy!

Choppy!

When I came in I had to act fast before the wind got any stronger!  It was a challenge hoisting my board up onto my car in the wind but I managed.  During my swim I decided to swim in the direction of the wind which worked out great……. I got a ride back courtesy of the wind!  The water remains super warm and pretty clear too.  I hope tomorrow is nice too!
