Back on Maui!

We’re finally back on Maui.   Yesterday I made it down to the beach in the late morning and although it was still pretty calm…. I didn’t trust it enough to take my board out.  Then it got very overcast and looked like it might storm….. So I went out swimming as fast as I could.  It didn’t end up raining and I swam down to the reef, but the visibility wasn’t very good.  It just felt good to be in the ocean!  Then when I came in…… a turtle swimming north popped up right by me and as I came in a turtle swimming south surfaced too!  I pointed the turtle out to a tourist…. But she wasn’t that thrilled.   Today the weather was very nice but a forecasted south swell was definitely building and causing some shore break intermittently.  I am guessing it will be bigger over the weekend messing up the water visibility.  Oh well I did swim and it felt really good!  I can’t wait for good paddling conditions again.  I’m very glad I did get to go out paddling on out trip to Mexico a few times!
