Sixteen Turtles Made My Day!!

Sixteen today!

sixteen today!

I got out on the water at around nine o’clock again…..but it was another beautiful morning with sunny skies and just a little bit of wind blowing from the south.  I paddled south towards the boat ramp, and just as I was passing Kam III, a turtle popped up!  I stopped for a few minutes and watched it swim around me and then continued on.  Down at the boat ramp I had company……two kayaks and four stand up paddlers!  Luckily the paddlers moved south and one of the kayaks moved north, and I was left with one kayak with a man and woman on board.  The first turtle I spotted was also spotted by the kayakers… I let them go to that one.  I spotted another turtle up ahead of me so I paddled to that one.  It was a really little turtle too!  Then more turtles started to surface and I got to sit between two different turtle triangles……and in between quite of few other turtles!  I even saw “Torpedo Head”  and “Lizard” today!  It got really nice down at the boat ramp but I knew it was getting late….so as soon as I had counted fifteen turtles at the boat ramp, I headed back.  It was nice paddling back and it seemed like it might stay nice for my swim too.  Luckily, the nice conditions prevailed and my swim was great too!  Not a bad day to spend with sixteen turtles!!
