Another day like the last, more unhappy turtles.
I passed a river with cool slightly stinky dark water running into the sea. I rolled and reveled in the chill. It’s getting so hot that just rolling in regular water doesn’t always cool me off any more. Sometimes I just sit upside down and reach down deep to let my heat disperse with the sea.
Early in the afternoon a sharp headwind picked up. I pulled over to a water sports center and was welcomed off the water on my first try.
After I was situated to wait out the wind I went back out to practice rolling on the rough water. I kept getting pushed into a buoy rope that separated the water sports from the swimmers. I lost my glasses. I used to tie my glasses on in two places, but that was when I was surfing on big wave s every chance I got. Over the winter, when I was barely rolling, I fell out of the habit of losing my glasses.
I wandered onto the hotel’s section of the beach and a security guard quickly and brusquely turned me back.

Nautical miles paddled: 13
Current location: Errr... yep. This was easier when I had a chart and/or a computer.
