Incredible day!

After yesterdays roaring winds, today was totally calm.  What a difference one day can make!  A beautiful day with a sky dotted with puffy and wispy clouds, and the island of Kahoolawe and Molokini in clear view.  Paddling down to the boat ramp, I came across my first turtle just outside of Kam III.  It floated on the surface for a few minutes, and then dove down.  At the boat ramp I found myself in between four turtles, two on one side of me and two on the other!  Only two of the turtles were feeling friendly and we were having such a nice visit, until two jet skiis pulling people on inflatables came roaring by.  All the turtles dove down and disappeared.  Paddling back was peaceful, though, so I was able to do some ocean meditation.  That really helps me get centered.  On my swim, I saw quite a bit of activity down by the rocks  and coral.  About twenty or so Trumpet fish were congregating for some reason, and I saw rainbow fish, “Humhumu” fish, and an assortment of other tropical fish all fluttering about!  It was a great day at the beach!
