Another Day In Paradise!

Nice day!

Nice Day!

Wow, just another picture perfect day on Maui!  A slight breeze blowing from the north and patchy clouds, but mostly sunny and beautiful.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and just as I was arriving, a kayaker was leaving.  I was the only one there and I spotted a turtle immediately!  It was out farther, so I paddled out to it.  Just as I got there, four more turtles popped up around me and I was surrounded!
Then one more turtle joined us, so that was six all at once.  Sometimes that happens!  A paddling friend joined me at the boat ramp and we had another turtle right between us, then she spotted another one out farther.  We both paddled out to it, and it ended up being a very small turtle, probably a youngster.  The day was so perfect, and eight turtles was really nice!  My friend decided to paddle back, so I did too, but I took the scenic route which was out much farther.  I got out to where it was so quiet and calm, to a place I like to call the “quiet zone”.  It was good for my head to sit there and meditate for a few minutes, and then I paddled in.  I looked for the manta rays on the way in, but none were around today. Who knows, maybe tomorrow!!!  My swim was equally enjoyable and the day stayed nice.  Just another day in paradise!!!
