Windy Ride!!

Well it wasn’t the calm glassy morning like yesterday! The wind was blowing from the north but I thought it might back off. I headed for the boat ramp in hopes of another turtle day. When I arrived the wind still hadn’t backed off. One turtle surfaced and then another one…… I got some photos but I was watching the wind. It was getting g stronger instead of backing off! Soon it got even stronger with gusts so I decided to paddle back. What a workout! I ended up paddling against the wind all the way back! I was so tired. Just as I paddled into the homestretch….. The wind backed off. It got just besutiful! My swim was great and visibility good. I really felt the fatigue in my arms. So much for besting the wind early! Maybe tomorrow…..
