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!

Saturday Sunset

Beautiful sunset!   After two south swells in a row……. hopefully the northwest swell won’t materialize.  Maybe paddling tomorrow……. but water visibility has been poor due to the swells……

Amazing Friday Sunset

Somehow the turtle got in the sunset post….. but we’ll let her stay.   It was quite an amazing sky to end a pretty amazing day…..

Fifteen Turtles!!

Oh man….what a spectacular turtle day!  The day was perfect, as were the ocean conditions and it was spectacular…… twelve turtles at the boat ramp…. one at Kam 1 on my way in from paddling…. and two turtles while swimming!  I had been longing for just such a day…… and it was today!  I was alone at the boat ramp with twelve turtles….. three turtle triangles and one turtle line of three with lots of baby turtles in the mix.  Then one turtle surfaced on my way coming in and wanted to play hide and seek.  Then while swimming….. I swam with two lovely turtles and got photos and video!  All the while the wind behaved and didn’t start coming in until after I was done.   It could not have been better!  It’s harder than you think to be swimming while taking photos and video…… it’s lots of swimming!  I’m really enjoying this underwater camera and the interaction with the turtles.   I hope tomorrow is just as nice!

Swimming With Turtles!!

We’ve had some weird weather lately.  Nice in the early morning….. clouds moving in…… the wind comes up and we get rain at some point in the day or night. It was supposed to pass yesterday….. but not yet.  It was windy from the start of the day today.  Some people were out paddling but it just didn’t look that good to me.  Instead I put on my snorkel gear and the underwater camera and took off for a swim.  Suddenly a turtle was headed in my direction!  It was great to swim with the turtle and I got some great photos and video.   I am really enjoying this underwater camera!

Swimming With Turtles!!

It’s been a stormy last few days but this morning looked so nice.  It was windy ….. but I went out paddling anyway.  It was a bumpy ride!  I didn’t dare go very far so so headed North against the wind.  It was bumpy paddling so I got almost down to Cove Park and then turned around.  It felt like I was surfing waves in that direction! It was still good to get out there though.  The wind intensified by the time I went swimming, but on my way heading south, a turtle appeared so I quickly turned around!  I was able to photograph it and take some videos.  Then, another turtle showed up heading south….. so I turned and swam with that turtle.  I got some photos and a video of that one but it was moving pretty quickly.   The turtle out swam me!   I was tired!   After coming in the clouds started rolling in…..dark clouds…..then some sprinkles so I packed up and went home.  The other day I waited out the rain…. and ended up having to hurriedly pack up all my stuff wet.  That wasn’t fun….. I hope it stays sunny tomorrow…..
