The morning sunrise was just beautiful!  By 8:30 a.m. the wind came up though.  By 9 a.m. it was fully blown out with white caps and substantial wind waves!  No paddling today!  In fact….. with the cloud cover I almost just went home.  Most people were fleeing the beach but that actually just made it pretty peaceful.  I stuck around.  Then the sun started to peek out and I went for a wild swim!  The visibility was non existent and the wind waves relentless.  It was a lot of work swimming against the wind!  I persevered and made it almost to the end of Charley Young beach and then turned around.  It was a wild ride back!  I was like a rag doll being tossed around!  I got back quick!  The sand was blowing around too so that was my final reason to go home.  Maybe tomorrow……
