Its maheem....

Well, we woke up late today (about 9 which never happens) and were messaged by a friend immediately to go check out the beach. We peaked outside and it was incredibly windy and grey. We quickly went down to the beach and were amazed at the howling wind and the huge waves. The ocean was more turbulent than we have ever seen it. It has stormed on and off all day and more is expected for tomorrow as a possible tropical depression is forming over us.

Of course, we had to run back to the house to get Matt's kite (Yep, No way in H... was I taking lessons today). I took this picture of him going out this afternoon and the waves had calmed down from this morning. If you look at the picture, you can see that he is knee deep in the frothy water and the wave breaking behind him is over his head. Overall the swell was about 12 foot today - HUGE!!! You can also see the huge waves breaking on the reef and we estimate they were about 18 foot out there (look at the white waves just under the sky about 1/3 of the way in the photo).
