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!

Swimming Buddy!!

Beautiful morning….. but already windy.  It blew off and on but the water wasn’t calm….. especially for Paddling.  I watched paddler after paddler head out and then be in within ten minutes…. outrigger canoes too.  I hoped the water was reasonably clear but wondered if it was.  As luck would have it…. the visibility was okay (not great)….. but okay.  I swam twice as long as usual and finally had a large female turtle join me!  She was just hangin’ out and I got lots of photos.  She was definitely not trying to ditch me!  The day stayed windy and even on the cool side.  In the water was perfect though!  Hopefully calm water tomorrow….

Windy Turtle Day!!

Yes….. it’s been windy…… and early.  I finally decided that I would need to get out swimming and Paddling before ten o’clock.  I took a beach walk with wrist weights on while the sun came up over the mountain.  It was a beautiful morning!  Then I took off for my swim.  I swam for awhile before I spotted a turtle swimming towards me.  The turtle hung out for a few minutes and I got video and photos!  After it moved out to sea….. I was heading back when another turtle was heading in my direction!  That turtle was just hanging out too.  Then it also headed out to sea so I came in.  What a great way to start the day!  The wind was still threatening but I took my board out anyway.  I figured I had at least an hour before the white caps moved in but when I got down to the boat ramp…… I wasn’t so sure!  One turtle surfaced and then I paddled back against some wind and chop.  I stopped at the point and had three turtles visit me.  One annoying tourist guy kept swimming after the turtles causing them to hide.  I wanted to say something!  Fortunately I did get some turtle photos.  Right after I came in from Paddling….. suddenly the wind backed off but it only lasted for about twenty minutes!  I hope the wind patterns get back to normal soon….
