Oh my gosh…..I went paddling!  I didn’t think I was going because the sky and ocean looked so stormy.  The conditions seemed to be changing by the minute, though, and suddenly the sun peeked out!  Then the ocean calmed down and it was so nice.  I hurried out because by then it was already 10:30 a.m.  It was beautiful!   I was so happy to be out on my board!  Well, it didn’t last.  The wind kicked up out of the south and it got choppy!  I paddled against the wind down to almost the end of Kam 2 and it was a workout.  I kept hoping it was going to back off but no luck with that.  I could see very dark clouds in the direction of Makena and it looked like it was raining pretty hard.  I turned around and paddled north with the wind at my back.  I made it back to Kam 1 with the push from the wind.  Then the wind backed off!  I decided to continue paddling down to Charley Young beach.  It was nice again!  On my way back…. the wind picked up again.  What weird conditions today!  It stayed windy until I went for my swim and then the wind backed off again and the sun came out.  The dark clouds were still looming out farther and now white caps were visible.  My swim was really nice though and the visibility was quite good as well.  The wind finally came in and took over about noon so I hurried off the beach.  Now it looks really stormy so I don’t know what tomorrow will bring…… I am glad I went out paddling today!
