Oh happy day, it was a gorgeous morning and just a slight breeze blowing! Conditions were very good and I decided to paddle north today. When I got down to Kalama Park, I didn’t see a single turtle! I watched the surfers enjoying some small waves and then paddled south. It was such a nice day so I decided to just keep paddling, and before I knew it I was down at the boat ramp! The first turtle popped up between Kam III and the boat ramp and I sure was glad to see it! I paddled on down to the boat ramp and sat for a while and no turtles. Three girls were nearby on paddle boards and a turtle surfaced and one of the girls freaked out and started screaming! Of course the turtle startled, dove down and disappeared. I wouldn’t come up either if someone was screaming at me! After that, no more turtles surfaced. The conditions were still perfect, though, and the wind was staying away. I paddled back to Kam I and it was still perfect! The conditions stayed nice all the way through my swim and it was even clear down at the reef today! What a gorgeous day…. I sure hope it’s just as nice tomorrow!
