Caught by the wind!!

Well it was a gorgeous day and the water was glassy….. no white caps in sight.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and had eight turtles all to myself!  It was so calm and nice.  A few turtles were just babies!  As soon as the wind threatened….. I headed back….. but by the time I was passing Kam 2….. it roared in and got crazy fast!  It was a big workout getting back but I just kept paddling.  It was so windy when I came in that I could barely get my board up the beach!  It was a miracle that I managed to get it up on my racks by myself.   My swim was very choppy and I didn’t see any turtles.   I swam against the wind and then let it toss me around on the way back!  I hope the wind cooperates better tomorrow….
