So Perfect!!!!

So perfect!

So perfect!

Wow, it was just this perfect, this morning when I arrived at the beach!  However, by the time I got out paddling…..a Kona wind kicked up and I paddled against it down to the boat ramp.  I figured that would be good because if the wind stayed Kona, it would give me a push back.  Well, just as I was passing Kam II, the wind started to back off, and I was sure I saw a pod of dolphins out farther so I hurried out in that direction paddling furiously!  By the time I got out there…..NOTHING!  I was so sure it was a pod of dolphins, so maybe they ditched me, who knows?  Then I ran into a paddling friend and she also saw what I had seen, and had even told a couple of other paddlers that there were dolphins out there!  Well, we didn’t see them again, so we continued to paddle down to the boat ramp.  There were two kayakers there already, and we saw a lot of turtles!  I sat in two turtle triangles and one time, the turtle triangle turned into four turtles and then I was surrounded!  There were so many turtles that I lost my count, but I think it was around eighteen or twenty today!  The kayakers were very excited to see the turtles, but we were the closest to them.  A couple of times my friend and I had a turtle right between our boards!  We were having a great time hanging out at the boat ramp and it was so perfect, but I couldn’t quite get the scenario of yesterday out of my mind of getting caught in the wind,  so we headed back.  It was perfect paddling conditions all the way back, and we kept paddling until we were down by Cove Park.  It was hard deciding to go in…but I wanted to swim before the wind came back up, so I said good-bye to my friend and paddled in.  The conditions stayed nice through my swim and it was still gorgeous when I left the beach.  It was just one of those perfect summer days on Maui!
