Windy….Nice….Four Turtles!!!

Nice morning!

Nice morning!

It was a very nice morning with just a bit of wind blowing….and just as I was getting myself ready to go out paddling, I spotted two whales spouting!  A friend said they had been out there all morning, but when I paddled out there I couldn’t see them anymore!  The wind backed off and the ocean got so nice and it was a joy paddling down to the boat ramp.  Of course I watched for whales the whole way!  It was nice down at the boat ramp and thankfully the turtles didn’t make me wait today since I wasn’t sure how long I dared hang out down there with the wind threatening.  I spotted two turtles floating on the surface, so I paddled over and sat between them!  One of the turtles disappeared, so I paddled closer to the other one and it was very friendly!  Then another turtle popped up on the other side of that turtle so I paddled in between them.  Finally a third turtle popped up putting inside a turtle triangle!  I was grateful for my four turtles because the wind was starting to emerge so I headed back.  I paddled against the wind until I got mid way past Kam II, and then the wind backed off again!  It got really nice again, so I paddled past Kam I to enjoy a few more minutes of paddling.  A few minutes later, the wind started to kick up again so I headed in.  By the time I went for my swim, the skies had become overcast and my swim was a bumpy one!  At least the visibility was okay, except down by the reef, but I did see fish though.  It was work swimming back against the wind.  When I came in I was chilly!  The wind wasn’t a warm wind and the overcast made it even colder.  Luckily, the sun came out for a little while so I could warm up, but so did the wind.  It was time to go home!  I hope it’s nice tomorrow and maybe a little warmer would be even nicer!
