The wind finally stopped blowing long enough for a paddle over to Penguin Island.  Seems that everyone else had the same idea.

Growing up’s always hard, no matter who or what you are.  And it ain’t no picnic for the birds either.

With perfect weather and calm seas I took the opportunity to paddle over to Second Rock. It’s on the edge of the shoals and except for the calmest days it’s impossible to get through the swell over the surrounding reef and it’s usually awash. Got to spent the afternoon on my very own island compete with a visit from a pod of dolphins.
