Turtle Day!!

Turtle day!

Turtle day!

It was another beautiful day on Maui today and I headed right to the boat ramp!  Just as I was paddling into the area, I noticed a group already there of a guy on a stand up board and three kayaks full of Japanese tourists.  The tourists were making so much noise that I wanted to plug my ears!  Luckily they stayed very close to the shore and all of the turtle action ended up being out farther.  Turtles were popping up everywhere!  Immediately I had a group of five turtles surrounding me and then I sat in a line of three turtles!  I saw “Lizard” and “Torpedo Head” today!  I was thoroughly enjoying the turtles and the nice day, but when I counted twenty-one turtles, I called it a day.  I paddled back in perfect conditions and it stayed nice right through my swim!  I was down at the reef and two large Ulua’s swam past me!  I attempted to swim with them, but they are much too fast.  On my way back, the same two Ulua swam past me again!  It was such a nice day with just a hint of Fall in the air…..
