Beautiful Sunday!!

Underwater land

Underwater world

Today almost a carbon copy of yesterday, except I didn’t get out into the water until 9:30 a.m.!  I guess I was suffering from birthday hangover and slept later than usual.  Last night we got some rain but today the skies were mostly sunny.  I paddled down to the boat ramp even though it was late.  Some wind kicked up from the south on my way down, but as soon as I arrived there, the wind completely backed off and it got perfect!  The turtles didn’t make me wait either.  I came across my first turtle outside of Kam III so I stopped to visit for a few minutes.  Then no sooner did I paddle into the boat ramp area, a turtle popped up right in front of me!  Farther down I spotted another turtle so I paddled over, but it ended up being three turtles!  I cruised up in the middle of them and sat to enjoy.  Soon the red pontoon snorkel boat roared up, so I knew that was my cue to head back.  Just as I was leaving, one of the crew on the boat yelled, “Hey I saw you over there with your “entourage”….”, and I said, “yes you did!”.  I paddled back in perfect conditions and I couldn’t believe it was staying so nice that late.  I didn’t want to go in!  I paddled farther north and ran briefly into a friend who had paddled straight out today.  He told me he didn’t see or hear a single whale.  I didn’t see any whales either, but I did see a couple splashing around way out on the ocean when I left.  My swim was very nice too and it was still nice when I left the beach!  It was just another one of those perfect kind of days!!
