Windy But Nice!!

It was another beautiful day today even though it was a bit windy.  The wind forecast was for north east wind but this was definitely coming from the south.  I paddled into it hoping it might back off.  No such luck today!  By the time I got down to Kam 3…… It was clear that the wind was here to stay.  I turned around and paddled north.  The funny thing was that although the wind was blowing from the south….. the choppy swells were pushing from the north!   That created some interesting conditions.  I admit….. I was having fun paddling over the swells!  I paddled in closer to the rocks (as close as I dared with choppy water)  but no signs of turtles today.  I swam in beautiful clear water though!  I saw fish at the reef but no turtles.  I think the wind backed off for a total of twenty minutes all morning…..  Just a windy day but at least it kept the 91 degree temperature a little bit easier to handle…..and of course…. It was still beautiful!
