Windy Day!!

So the wind blew in by 8:30 a.m. and after watching it for awhile…..I could see that it would be a swim day.   It was really beautiful though!  I swam north into the wind and it was a workout.  I made it down to almost the end of Charley Young beach and then turned around.  I was enjoying being tossed by wind waves on the way back until suddenly a turtle appeared under me.  Of course I turned around again……and swam with the turtle down to Charley Young beach!  Right at the end….. the turtle surfaced for air and when I came up…. Two tourists were watching us.  The man said “is that your buddy”….. To which I replied “it’s one of them!”…….  I do love swimming with the Honu!

Three Friendly Turtles!!

Wow!  A much nicer morning than yesterday.  It even rained yesterday!  But this morning was just beautiful.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and three lovely turtles visited me and let me take photos.  They came up separately so I got some “one on one” time with each turtle.  The conditions were so nice!  As soon as I paddled back…. the wind picked up so apparently my timing was good!  The water is so warm right now.  The visibility was pretty good too.  On my swim….. I stopped to watch a fish tormenting a crab!  The fish wouldn’t leave the crab alone so it buried  itself in the sandy bottom.  The fish seemed to know the crab was still there……. Sorry crab!  Down at the reef I saw Yellow Tangs and Humu Humu fish and swimming back a school of little fish zoomed past me!  It was a great day to be at the beach…….

Stormy Sunset

A little bit of rain and lots of dark clouds amidst some sunset color trying to emerge…….

Good Paddling Day!!

It was a beautiful morning!  Some clouds were hanging around and it even looked stormy from time to time, but it was still nice.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and three paddlers were already there…… Sitting.  I went farther down to wait for turtles but not even one showed up!  The water wasn’t calm but it was strangely glassy anyway.  The overcast kept it cooler too.  I paddled past the rocks at Kam 2 and saw one turtle surrounded by three tourists snorkeling …. I didn’t stop.  Swimming was nice too although sunshine would have made the visibility better.  I saw several baby Puffer fish and lots of other baby fish too!  At least the wind stayed back for awhile today…….
