Perfect Day!!

Ahhhhhh!

Ahhhhhh!

What a perfect Summer day on Maui!  A wind blowing from the south was threatening but it backed off and it got perfect.  There were hardly any clouds in the sky, except a crown of wispy and fluffy white clouds hovering over the top of Haleakala.  Initially I paddled north in the direction of Cove Park and Kalama Park, but I had to stay out a ways because there was actually some surf down that way.  The surfers were loving it!  Five turtles came to visit me too, and one of them was “Lizard”!  I guess that turtle is hanging out there now instead of the boat ramp.  The conditions got so perfect so I decided to paddle down to the boat ramp too.  I ran across a big turtle as I passed Kam II and then another one half-way past Kam III!  Then I saw the red pontoon snorkel boat cruising in so I turned around.  That was seven turtles for the day in three different spots!  It was so perfect and calm out on the water and that made it really hard to come in, but I wanted to swim while it was perfect too.  I am really enjoying swimming down to the point lately and seeing so many more fish!  The wind stayed out until the time I was starting to pack up to go home and then it finally came in!  At least it cooperated  for me!!  I hope it’s this perfect tomorrow…..we’ll see!
