OH HELLO TURTLE!!!!!

Oh hello turtle!

Oh hello turtle!

After all the wind from last week, today was glorious!  I got out late but I headed for the boat ramp with my iPhone in the water proof case, hoping to photograph some turtles.  It was a gorgeous day with no wind blowing and although the VOG is creeping in, it was still mighty nice!  I didn’t see a single turtle until I hit the boat ramp and then suddenly I was surrounded by five turtles and I scrambled to get my phone ready.  I took some great pictures of the turtles too! (The above photo is one I really like and that turtle posed for me!)  I stayed even after the snorkel boat cruised over and got more photos.  I am really enjoying taking my phone with me but I was confused when my phone actually rang!  There were at least thirteen turtles in all at the boat ramp and one turtle at Kam III!  I got a nice little video too which surprised me.  A paddling friend showed up and we chatted for a bit, then I took her picture too! And  I just texted the photo to her!  I paddled back in perfect conditions and swam in perfect conditions.  The reef was actually clear today and I saw a lot of fish too!  I sure hope it’s just as nice tomorrow!!
