Beautiful Day!!

Beautiful sunrise sky…… lovely day with red flags out but water visibility is clearing up so maybe tomorrow.  Winds are variable which brings the Vog over so there was barely a sunset.   I saw two people out swimming at dusk right where the lady got attacked by the shark almost three weeks ago…… not smart!  I miss my turtles!

Ten Turtles & Six Rays!!

Beautiful turtle morning!  The water visibility wasn’t that good…. but good enough.  I had ten turtles down at the coral and six Spotted Eagle Rays to swim with!  It was amazing!  Then several turtles were just swimming all around me!  It was a good swim workout too…

Beautiful Sunday!!

What a nice day!  I had ten turtles to swim with!  Some of them were feeding at the rocks and doing some crazy acrobatics!  It was hilarious.  On my swim back…. I had to yell at a tourist lady!  I saw her hanging on to a turtles shell with BOTH hands and then she grabbed the turtles back fins and yanked them!  I was livid!  What is wrong with people???

Perfect Day!!

It was a perfect morning!  It started out breezy….. but the wind backed off and it got so nice.  At first, there were no turtles down at the coral and then I ended up with eight turtles….. including two cute baby turtles!  It was a joy to swim today and I hope tomorrow will be just as nice….

After The Storm

We dodged another one!  Hurricane Olivia came right over Maui…..turned west and belted Lahaina.  On the south side, we had minimal wind and rain…. in our little bubble again!  I didn’t swim for three days so today I was overjoyed to see my turtles.  I had seven turtles!  Many of them were feeding on seaweed in the rocks.  The water visibility wasn’t too bad despite the choppy days we had.  My stand up board is still in the garage and my back and leg still hurt…. so no Paddling right now…

Nine Turtles!!

Some people said the water was murky….. but I found it to be okay….. at least I could see the turtles.  Nine lovely turtles swam with me!  They were swimming around three and four at a time….. it was great!  It was still windy conditions so the swim back was quite a workout….. no Paddling today…..

Windy Day!!

It was windy from the start today.  It was great for beach walking and I knew I would swim, but Paddling didn’t seem probable for today.  I zoomed down to the coral with the wind pushing me but I knew swimming back would be lots of work.  Down at the coral I had nine turtles!  The turtles and I were getting pushed around by the wind waves and current and a couple of them were just sitting on the sandy bottom.  One turtle dug in the sand to cover itself!  I hope the wind cooperates soon so I can get out Paddling…..
