What a weird weather day!  It started out calmer than yesterday …. but then the wind started blowing on and off.   It was looking rather stormy but I went out on my board anyway.   The water was actually pretty nice so I headed south.  By the time I got as far as the end of Kam 2….. it became a different story.   Suddenly there were strong wind gusts so I turned around in a hurry!  I could see it was raining in both directions so I paddled hard between wind gusts to get back.  It took a lot of effort!   I finally made it in and managed to get my board up the beach and put up on my car racks.  Then the wind completely backed off again so my swim ended up being great. The water is so warm!  I didn’t see even one turtle today….. they must have been hiding out somewhere.  The day stayed partly overcast and the wind continued to blow in and out…. alternating directions.  It was just one of those kind of days….. maybe tomorrow….it was still beautiful!
