Rolling swells, fun paddle!

Today was not windy like yesterday, but there were still rolling swells from the North that created some fun paddling conditions.  The water visibility is kicked up again and I hear there may be a south swell on it’s way.  Paddling down to the boat ramp, I noticed that the top of Haleakala was completely clear of clouds and I imagined how nice the sun rise must have been earlier up on the mountain.  At the boat ramp I saw two turtles.  One popped it’s head up, looked at me and dove down, the other one was more inquisitive.  It hung with me for about ten minutes.  The water was totally clear at the boat ramp,  just beautiful!  After the second turtle swam away, I paddled out to the quiet zone and sat for awhile.  It was so peaceful.  Before I knew it, an hour had already evaporated,  so I paddled back to Kam I.  I am so glad I got to see two turtles today!
