Windy and Nice!!

The day started out so perfect.  Ten minutes into paddling….. a north wind kicked up!  I paddled down to the boat ramp hoping the wind would back off……. But it stayed choppy.  I saw two turtles at the boat ramp but the choppy windy conditions were making me uneasy, so I headed back.  I paddled against the wind the entire way back!  I ran into a paddling friend who had gone north so the wind was giving her a ride back.  The wind just didn’t seem to be backing off today.  Just about the time I came in……the wind decided to finally back off!  My swim was perfect!   It looked like it might rain and it was raining further out.  Very strange but comfortable day….. But I have to admit I gave some thought to making some hot cocoa when I got home!
