Paddling Today!!

When I got up this morning….. it wasn’t windy!  It was not as cold as yesterday either.  I walked the beach and watched the sun struggling to emerge from clouds ….. it finally did.  The water looked pretty good too, people were taking out their outrigger canoes and paddle boards.  I headed out for my swim and the water was so clear!  I saw lots of fish but no turtles this morning.  The water was still pretty nice after swimming…… so I decided to go out Paddling!  A friend and I paddled down to the end of Kam 2…… and then decided we really didn’t trust the wind and turned around.  We stopped at the point where we saw two turtles and a lot of snorkelers.   I headed north and noticed a big turtle right in front of me!  I paddled with it for awhile …… until the wind roared in with white caps.  I decided to call it a day and paddled in.  It was so much effort trying to get my board strapped up on my racks! I had to do it between wind gusts!  Once that wind came in….. it got to cold to hang out at the beach.  Yes…. Maui can get cold this time of year!  I’m looking forward to Spring when we usually get much better weather and conditions.  But at least I did get out on my board and had three turtles today!  It’s all good….
