Clear Water Swim

For the past 2 weeks or so, we’ve been experiencing that menacing weather pattern of southwest wind with blazing hot and heavy air.  Yesterday was a nice break in the mid-summer pattern!  The wind switched from hard southwest to light east.  When the wind blows southwest that long, upwelling occurs, which means the wind pushes the Gulf Stream water back out to sea, and brings dirty cold deep water to the surface.  When the wind switches onshore (out of the East), the warm, clean waters of the Gulf Stream come right to our shoreline.  I decided to take the waterproof GoPro camera out for a swim, here are some photos of Hatteras Island at its best, enjoy!
