Paddling Today!

So the wind finally cooperated a little bit today.  It started out mostly nice and glassy….. Then a south wind kicked up.  The wind was blowing from the south but the loopy swells were coming from the north!  I decided to paddle into the wind so I headed south.  It was so great to be back out on my board!  I got to the end of Kam 2….. and turned around.  I didn’t trust the wind that much!  I had a feeling the wind was blowing north way out and that is what was generating the loopy swells I was paddling over.  I sure didn’t want to get caught in the crazy wind!  I paddled down past Charley Young beach and then turned around.  The wind was still blowing from the south so I ended up paddling against it back to Kam 1!  At least I got a work out in.  By the tome I went swimming……the wind was still blowing from the south!  I decided to swim south against the wind but on my way back…. I heard wind howling in my snorkel.  Sure enough….. the wind finally switched directions.  Now I was swimming against the wind again!  What crazy wind!    It sure was a beautiful day though, and there was even a rainbow around the sun!  I love Maui!
