Caught in the Wind!

The morning started out nice.  It looked very good for paddling.  I headed down to the boat ramp.  Two other paddlers were already there so I stayed out a bit.  Two turtles surfaced but didn’t hang around.  Suddenly the surface of the water changed so I headed back.  It was too late….. the wind came in and caught me!  It was so much work to paddle against the wind!  White  caps and wind swells were battering me! The wind really wanted to grab my hat too.  It was crazy!  Several times I begged the wind to stop ….. But it had other plans today.  I finally made it back!  I was smart when I went swimming  and swam against the wind….. Letting it toss me on the way back!  Now that is pretty fun.  I usually try not to get caught in the wind…..but today the wind won…..
