Paddling and Snorkeling!

What a great Memorial day at the beach!  Today I paddled with a friend and we took our snorkel gear along with us.  We paddled down to the boat ramp and put our snorkel gear on and went snorkeling.  It was great, the coral formations were amazing out there and undisturbed.  We saw a turtle sleeping on the bottom and another turtle swimming.  The swimming turtle had tumors all over it…so sad.  I saw a large bright blue parrot fish, numerous other tropical fish, and a school of about 30 good sized fish with black stripes on their bodies!  The school of fish swam right by me and it was so exciting. I tried to swim after them, but they were way too fast.  I guess when the turtles don’t come to us,  we can always snorkel out to them!  It was a great addition to my paddling workout and I really enjoyed it!  Maybe I’ll do it again tomorrow.
