Bumpy Ride!!

It was a beautiful morning.  It was pouring rain over the West Maui mountains…… and a rainbow appeared in the clouds!  The wind was already playing games though.  White caps from the north  were visible from the beach but the wind was swirling from the east.  No wonder it was so bumpy!  Competing winds are hard to paddle in.  I decided to stay close just in case those white caps came roaring in but it was a cruise going north ….. thanks to the east wind that prevailed.  I paddled south and then turned around to go north….. then it was work Paddling against the east wind!  Oh well!  It was great to be out on my board anyway and the water is so clear too!  Swimming was a joy despite the wind but no turtles today…. maybe tomorrow……
