Another Nice Day in Paradise!!

It sure was!

It sure was!

Yes, it was another spectacular day on Maui today!  A mix of clouds and sun and no wind blowing and calm conditions….just what I ordered.  I paddled down to the boat ramp in nice conditions and when I arrived at the boat ramp, two other stand up paddlers were there and also a kayak.  The water was so nice and calm but the turtles took their time coming up.  First I spotted one turtle popping its head up out farther so I paddled out.  It hung around for a few minutes and then dove down and I could see it swimming under me.  The other stand up paddlers and the kayak moved on and more turtles started to appear.  I counted eleven turtles for the day!  I’m so glad I am seeing the turtles again!  I paddled back in nice conditions except the clouds started to move in,  but during my swim, the sun came out again.  I decided to swim down where the turtle had taken me the other day and I saw more interesting coral and fish!  The water is so warm!  When I got ready to leave the beach, a friend told me that two stand up paddlers had seen a 12 ft shark and a baby shark so he came in from swimming!  I rather doubt that story since sharks do not travel with their young……maybe it was dolphins?  I’ll probably find out tomorrow!!
