Back Out On My Board!!!

So glad to be back out there!

so glad to be back out there!

I couldn’t have ordered a more perfect day to get back out on my board!  Clear skies and calm water were the conditions of the day.  I had just started paddling out when two turtles popped up one on each side of me,  startling me!  Then I saw a third turtle surface ahead of me.  That was three turtles before I even got out there!  I started paddling towards the boat ramp and ran into a paddling friend, so we paddled together.  Just as we came into the area, a big turtle surfaced to my right so I stopped to visit.  It came right up to my board and popped its head up and then swam around to the back of my board.  I followed it for a few minutes and then continued down to the boat ramp.  My friend said there were more turtles down farther, but I immediately spotted two turtles out farther so I paddled out to them.  I sat right between them for a few minutes and then a third turtle surfaced and I was in a turtle triangle!  There were so many turtles and they did not disappoint!  By the time I counted twenty turtles, I decided to paddle back.  Then I saw one last turtle as I started back!  It was such a gorgeous day and the conditions stayed nice all the way back.  When I reached Kam II, I ran into my friend again so we paddled north for a while.  Before we knew it we were at Cove Park and a swell was rolling into shore, so we headed south.  We had been out on the ocean for a while, so I decided to paddle in and go for my swim.  The beautiful conditions prevailed all the way through my swim and it was still very nice at the beach when I left.  What a nice day to come back to my beach.  I really missed it!  I hope it’s just as nice tomorrow….
