Last night on Kauai - Pono Kai current
Tomorrow we fly for SANS SecEast in New Orleans. Kathy and did manage to go swimming today, lots of sun. There has been a high surf advisory for East shore, but the ocean did not look too bad and I have definitely seen and swam in larger waves. But these were coming in again and again very quickly and the current was the strongest I have seen. It was literally like an infinity pool. With fins on you could hold your position relative to the beach, but it took pretty serious energy to gain ground. We only spent about half the time we usually spend swimming, wanted to have plenty energy if we needed extraordinary effort to get out. But it was not a problem the waves push you into the beach and there was not much of a shore break either.
