Morning Paddling!!

The last two days were so windy.  The swell is backing off but the wind is still with us.  The wind is a very good thing…..we couldn’t survive without it…… but it’s been so unpredictable lately.  This morning I tried the early morning strategy and walked from the beach instead of coming home.  The ocean wasn’t calm and still an occasional set of waves were breaking on shore.  I watched it for awhile anf just about the time I decided I wasn’t going out….. It all backed off and it got really nice!   That was 8:30 a.m. and I grabbed my board and out I went!  It was still bumpy but it was beautiful.  It stayed nice for about forty minutes tops!  At least I got out there.  My swim was nice although the water visibility is still poor.  These south swells really mess up the conditions.  Soon after my swim….. It all got funky again.  I was glad I was done because the wind was starting to kick up with white caps just waiting to roar in!  Now it’s very funky out and overcast too…..
