Perfect Morning!

Oh nice morning!  Yesterday the wind was acting crazy coming in and out and it rained last night.  Apparently remnants from Tropical storm Howard affecting us.  I didn’t think today would be a beach day but I was wrong!  It was much nicer than yesterday morning and not a white cap in sight.  I headed on my board down to the boat ramp and it was just beautiful out!  There was hardly anyone out so they must have thought the conditions would be messed up….. they missed out!  A turtle was waiting for me when I arrived at the boat ramp and so I paddled up to it.  Then two more turtles popped up and I was in a turtle triangle!  Soon two more turtles surfaced and I was in turtle heaven having the best time!  Then suddenly a jet ski and a power boat roared out of the boat ramp and scared off the turtles.  I really hate when that happens…… they are supposed to get out a ways before accelerating but who is monitoring it?   No one.  Oh well….. One more turtle surfaced after that which made six turtles for me this morning!  I paddled back in nice conditions and just as I came to the end of Kam 2……the wind came in behind me and soon it was crazy windy …. complete with white caps!  At least it blew me the rest of the way back but getting my board back up the beach and on my car was a different story.   Luckily a paddling friend helped me!  I swam the ” wind swim”  which is when I swim against the wind and then turn around and let the wind swells toss me around on the way back!  The water was so clear!  The wind was relentless from the south and began blowing sand around.  That was my cue that it was time to go home.  I wonder what tomorrow will be like?  We will see……
