Crashing Against The Shore

Winds from the south today crashing against the shore meant I spent at
least an hour sitting on the rocks mesmerized.
There is nothing more soothing to me than big wind and the sound if the
surf.
Of course, I don’t feel quite that way when I have to leave the island and
the winds mean riding the river in big waves especially in November.
Sure it can be better in a motor boat than a kayak… But crossing in wind
is always a safety concern and the wind is taken very seriously since as
any boater knows, we are at the mercy of the waves.
But today those concerns are far from my mind. I got to bask on the wind,
sun and sparkling waves smashing into the island. The only thing better
would have been jumping in for a swim… But I’m not that mesmerized!
