Another beautiful morning here on Maui!  When I first went out paddling, the water was not as glassy as it was yesterday, but still very nice.  By the time I got down to the boat ramp, the wind backed off and it was glassy!  I decided to just hang out for a while down there, and as I was sitting on my board, a turtle appeared out of nowhere.  Then another one appeared, and then another one!  I was thrilled to see some turtles!  One of the larger ones started to swim right towards me so I stayed as still as I could.  It swam right along the right side of my board, then went under my board and then popped its head up behind me!  All three hung out with me for about ten minutes and then went their separate ways.  I love turtles!  My swim was just as nice and the wind stayed mellow.  I love Maui!

    Mary, a loved the visual of your three playmate turtles. Made me smile and – though I am thousands of thousands of miles away – your telling of their presence helps me feel “not alone” and I need that right now.
    Blessings, Genie
