Greeted By A Dolphin!!

Perfect day!

Perfect day!

Well, after our ordeal with our Cabo to San Diego flight being cancelled on Saturday…..having to stay an extra day….and having to re-book our San Diego hotel and our flight back to Maui for the next day….we finally made it home to Maui!  At least the airline booked us in First Class on the way back to Maui…..it was the least they could do!  Today I made it out paddling and was it ever perfect!  Just as I paddled out from Kam I, I ran into a paddling friend and she asked me if I saw the dolphin and then there it was swimming right by me!  Then it disappeared for a bit and I said, “Where’s our dolphin?”……and it popped right up in front of us!  We laughed so hard!  We hung around for a while following it back and forth, and then it moved out to sea.  It was strange to see a dolphin all alone like that….I sure hope it was okay.  Then we paddled down to the boat ramp and the turtles didn’t disappoint!  All in all, there were more than a dozen turtles today and one last one outside of Kam III on the way back!  One turtle got so friendly and hanging right next to me, so I reached down and gently tugged on his flipper!  He wiggled away and then swam right back to me!  What a nice day to get back out on the water!!!!
