Perfect Day!!!

oh hello!

oh hello!

It was a perfect day from start to finish.  No wind was blowing and calm conditions prevailed making it a perfect day for being out on the ocean!  On my way out, I encountered my first turtle of the day popping up right in front of me!  It didn’t stay long and soon dove down, so I continued to the boat ramp.  It was a joy paddling today!  When I arrived there, two kayaks were sitting in my spot, so I stayed out farther, until I spotted a turtle in closer.  I paddled in and about the time I got to it,  the turtle disappeared.  I had to wait a while before more turtles came around, but finally two surfaced out farther so I paddled out.  They were two rather small turtles and I couldn’t get in between them because they were too close together, so I just floated next to them.  Then I spotted another turtle in closer and paddled towards it, but then a turtle popped up out of nowhere right next to me so I stopped!  It was very friendly and swam around me.  When the turtle got to the point where I could see its tail, I realized it was Lizard again today!  Then I noticed a turtle out farther and paddled out again, and when I got closer, there were actually three turtles instead of one.  I paddled up in between them to hang out.  The day was so perfect that it was hard to make the decision to paddle back!  As I passed Kam III, I ran into a paddling friend, and then another paddling friend joined us too.  While we were sitting there, two turtles visited us, swimming under us!  We chatted for a while, and then one of them paddled south and two of us paddled back.  The conditions stayed perfect so I was looking forward to my swim.  The water was so clear!  I swam down to the reef and watched the fish for a while, and then two many tourists came into the area so I swam back.  It stayed nice, and it was still very nice when I left the beach!  I hope tomorrow will be more of the same.  I never get tired of it!
