We we had weather for about a week…..Rain and wind. Yesterday it finally got nice again at the beach. It was Thanksgiving… So between cooking and power washing the house….. there was no time for paddling! This morning it was nice again so I got back out there! There was some wind blowing from the south …. So I headed down to the boat ramp. It was a bumpy ride but it was beautiful! Down at the boat ramp I visited with four turtles! I was not too sure of the wind so I didn’t stay long. On the way back….. The wind changed direction. Now it was blowing at me! The ocean was still bumpy but by the time I went for my swim……. It backed off and it smoothed out. Even with the stormy conditions of last week, the water was pretty clear. I saw fish down at the reef and followed the Spotted Eagle Bat Ray around for a while. I was so happy to be in the ocean! It was just a beautiful day! I want it like this tomorrow too…..
