Eleven Turtles!!

Nice view from my beach chair!

Nice view from my beach chair!

It was a gorgeous morning with just a light breeze blowing from the south, so I headed down to the boat ramp.  Ten minutes into paddling, the wind got stronger and then it backed off by the time I got to the boat ramp.  My first two turtles greeted me outside of Kam III!  I had one on each side of me for a few minutes and then they both disappeared.  One of the turtles I recognized as “Lizard”, with that long lizard-like tail!  At the boat ramp, there were four kayaks sitting in my spot when I got down there, but luckily they all moved on quickly.  Then the turtles started to surface!  I counted nine turtles at the boat ramp……and at one point, I was sitting in the middle of three turtles……and then I noticed a line of three turtles down farther so I paddled over.  The wind stayed out and I got eleven turtles for the day!  I paddled back in nice conditions and it stayed nice for my swim too!  Just as I was getting ready to leave the beach, the wind started to blow again so I got lucky.  I hope tomorrow is nice too!!
