Paddle – Snorkel!

Yes, I did it again!  I got a little bit of a late start, but  the morning was beautiful and conditions perfect for paddling.  I paddled north to Cove park and then turned around and paddled to the boat ramp.  On my way down, I ran into two paddling friends paddling back to Kam I.  They had started out earlier in the morning and paddled to Keawakapu Beach. That is further than I paddle, but one day I plan to get an earlier start and paddle there too.  Today I took my mask and snorkel with me and snorkeled again out from Kam III and the boat ramp!  The water was nice and clear, and I saw a big turtle swimming towards me.  I hoped it was going to surface, but instead, it dove down and hid under a coral shelf.  That is probably a good place to hide if you are a turtle!  Then I saw the same large school of fish I saw yesterday, so they must be hanging out there.  I really enjoyed just swimming around looking at the beautiful coral, and watching fish chase each other around!  I also saw some Hawaiian Damsel fish today and they are some of my favorites.  The “paddle-snorkel” is becoming a habit….a good habit!

Maui welcomes me on a most perfect day!
