I’m Back…..The Turtles Are Back!!!!!

Perfect beach day!

Wow, and it was so perfect!  Sunny skies prevailed with just a hint of a breeze blowing from the north to keep things cool.  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to paddle all the way down to the boat ramp!  As soon as I paddled in to the boat ramp, my first turtle appeared.  There was a kayak with two visitors in the area and me, and it was early so the boats were not coming in yet.  Two more turtles surfaced so I paddled over to them.  Just about the time I got to them, two more turtles joined them and I was surrounded by four turtles!  Suddenly three more turtles surfaced too!  Then I looked down and there was a turtle swimming underneath my board too.  Turtle # 10 popped up right next to me and stayed with me for a while.  Then boom, and turtle came whizzing by me popping its head up to look at me!  I hoped it wasn’t being chased by anything…..but after I had watched Soul Surfer on my flight back from California….I took an extended look just to be sure!  Just about the time I was going to paddle back, turtle #11 and 12 popped up too!  It was a great turtle day for me, and the conditions stayed perfect all the way back too.  I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but today was plenty enough birthday present for me!!!!  By the time I swam, the wind had kicked up and it was a rough water swim but I didn’t care.  What a great day!!!!
