Gorgeous December Day!!

Gorgeous day!

Gorgeous day!

I didn’t think it could get more perfect than yesterday……..BUT I was wrong…..today was even nicer than yesterday!  Sunny skies, calm conditions and just a hint of a breeze were the order of the day.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and as I passed Kam II, I looked up at the mountain and it was totally clear again today!  Even the island of Lanai was visible today.  Down at the boat ramp I had some competition…..three paddlers were sitting right in my favorite turtle spot.  I stayed north of them, but it looked like none of us were seeing any turtles, so they paddled away.  Of course I stuck around, even though the turtles made me wait today.  Finally six turtles surfaced, all at different times and I had them all to myself!  It wasn’t until turtle #7 and #8 popped up that I got to sit between them.  Then #8 disappeared and turtle #9 surfaced and I sat between #7 and #9.  The last turtle I saw,  swam  just beneath me and kept on going.  I guess it was just passing through!  I waited quite a while for those ten turtles and then I paddled back.  Ten turtles are still great!  Even one turtle is great!  The conditions stayed perfect so I paddled out farther to look for whales.  So far, I haven’t seen any whales in close enough so that will have to wait!  It was so nice out there today that it was difficult to make the decision to come in, but the water was so clear, I was looking forward to swimming too.  I didn’t end up seeing any turtles on my swim today but I did see a lot of fish.  It was one gorgeous December day!!
