Turtle Happiness!!

Nice day!

Nice day!

After being out of the water for three days…..while helping my daughter with my grandson and the new baby….I was more than ready to get out there today!  It was a very nice day……and no wind was blowing.  There was just a slight swell causing some loopy bumps, but other than that, it was really nice!  I paddled down to the boat ramp and just as I entered the Kam III area, a turtle popped up in front of me!  I stopped and sat with it for a few minutes and it made me so happy to see a turtle!  I had a late start this morning, so I continued down to the boat ramp.  I wanted to get down there before the boats started coming in.  At the boat ramp there was a kayak there already, but it started to leave when I paddled up.  The ocean got very nice and glassy!  I sat for a few minutes and saw one more turtle and then decided to head back.  The conditions have been so unpredictable lately, so I didn’t want to push my luck!  It stayed really nice the whole way back and even the loopy swells were looking glassy!  By the time I went for my swim, the wind still had not come up so it was a smooth swim overall, except for the loopy swells.  Whatever this little swell is, it is making the water visibility not as good as it usually is, but at least I could see the bottom.  Hopefully tomorrow it will be just as nice as today and the swell will be gone…you never know!  It was still great just to get out there!
