Nice Day!!

Twelve turtles!

Twelve turtles!

I got a late start today but it was a really nice day and I didn’t want to miss out.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and waited,  and waited, and finally three turtles surfaced all at once!  I was surrounded!  It was so nice down at the boat ramp and the water was so clear, I could see the turtles swimming down near the bottom.  Two more turtles surfaced and one of them was “Lizard”!  It was the only one I recognized today.  After I counted eight turtles I started to paddle back.  Just as I was coming into Kam II, I ran into a paddling friend  and three more turtles!  We chatted for a while and then paddled down farther north.  The conditions were so nice!  On the way in, another turtle popped up and that made twelve turtles in all for the day.   The wind came up somewhat when I went for my swim, but the water was so clear.  I swam down to the reef and enjoyed the fish.  I didn’t see any turtles on my swim today.  I hope tomorrow is just as nice as today!
