Release Date 9/28/2022

 I brought my kayak back to scuba froggy where they let me store it. The sketchiest part of the trip is towing it down there on my motor scooter.

It was pretty windy with the wind from the south west so I had quite a bit of weather cocking on the way up there. 

At one point two local fishermen on the shore or gesturing wildly for me to come over to them so I did. One guy kept pointing in the water eventually I figured out what he wanted  he had lost his floating bait container and his bait. It was a little dicey in the surf but I picked it up paddled over and threw it to him on the rocks. He was super happy and appreciative.

I didn't want to go too far because I knew I'd have to pedal against the wind on the way back. I found a cool little isolated cove just to myself.

After lunch I did a bit of snorkeling and free diving there was a bit of coral but not many fish.  

Truth: waiting is difficult

On the way back the boat took on a lot of water. The hatches leak and the bulkheads do as well so I ended up sitting in the water I can feel the boat getting heavier and feel the water around my legs but I made it back to the shore. I was pretty tired by the time I was done.
