What a windy day!  Even at 7 a.m. it was already windy.  I decided to leave my car at the beach with my board on it and walk home.  Two hours later I looked out and no wind!  I grabbed my stuff and headed for the beach.  It was so nice down there!  I slapped on some sunscreen and hurried out.  I wasn’t sure how long it might be nice so I decided to stay close by.  It was perfect paddling…. Just beautiful!  I paddled for an hour and then came in to swim.  Just as I came in….. The wind decided to come up!  It was tricky getting my board up on my racks in the wind but I managed.  I didn’t mind swimming when it was windy and the water was pretty clear.  I found myself in the middle of a huge school of little fish!  There must have been a hundred of them swimming all around me….. even some of them ran into my mask!  They were that close…. Wow!  By the time I left the beach…. the wind had come in for good and started to blow sand around.   That’s usually when I leave!  I wonder what tomorrow will be like?
