So it started out nice……… just a light wind blowing from the north.  I paddled down to Kam 3 and then the wind picked up.  Pretty soon I was paddling over choppy swells and it wasn’t letting up.  I turned around to paddle north.  Still choppy swells…. and now it was overcast making it dark.  I paddled back and just as I reached Kam 1…… the wind suddenly backed off !  I decided to keep paddling but five minutes later the wind came up again and the water got choppy.  I came in!  Then the wind backed off again and it was nice again.  I went swimming and it was still pretty nice until on the way back…. I started hearing wind in my snorkel.  I swam against the wind the rest of the way!  This fickle wind!  I heard through the grapevine that the weather could be changing this weekend so I am glad J got out in my board…… Still a beautiful Maui day!
