NIce Day and Three Turtles!!

Paddlers enjoying a sunset paddle!

It was another nice day today except there was a noticeable swell and it was causing a surge at the shoreline.  I watched for a few minutes to see what the ocean was doing and decided to go out when I didn’t see any real shore break.  There was a surge however!  Once I got out past the bumps, the ocean was pretty glassy and nice.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and once again, I had the place to myself.  Just as I headed into the boat ramp…..turtle #1 was waiting for me!  After that, I had to wait for a bit for the next one.  Soon turtle #2 and #3 popped up to greet me and I sat in between them!  The conditions were nice out there but no more turtles surfaced so I headed back.  Three turtles is better than none!  I paddled back in nice conditions and it stayed nice through my swim.  Unfortunately, the swell and surge was already causing limited visibility in the water, but I was still able to see some fish at the reef.  Supposedly the swell was supposed to build today, along with some high tides, so I don’t know what tomorrow will be like.  I’d be happy for some consecutive nice days in a row right now!!
