Delightful Paddling!!

Delightful paddling!

Delightful paddling!

It was just delightful paddling today!  Such perfect conditions, light breeze, clear water, passing clouds…….just right.  I paddled down to the boat ramp and when I arrived, I was the only person there!  I hadn’t been there very long when a turtle popped up ahead of me, so I paddled to it.  When I got there, it ended up being two turtles…..and then another turtle surfaced and I was in a turtle triangle!  Then “Torpedo Head” began its dance of up and down in the water and that made four turtles right from the start of the day.  Then “Bumpy” popped up and swam over by me and another turtle was swimming right underneath my board at the same time!  I ended up being in another turtle triangle and a couple of turtles surfaced out farther which made an even dozen turtles for today!  The conditions were so wonderful and glassy the whole time I was paddling and it stayed nice all the way through my swim too!  I saw several baby Puffer fishes and those two Ulua from the other day were hanging around again!  Three fish with stripes and purple tails and fins were lounging at the reef too.  What a delightful day!!
