Perfect Paddling Day!!

Calm and clear!

Calm and clear!

After such a windy,  choppy day yesterday…..today was perfect for paddling!  I headed straight for the boat ramp and I had the place to myself.  I immediately spotted two turtles surfacing, so I paddled right between them to sit!  I struggled to get my iPhone ready for taking photos…..but I was not in time for the turtles…they both dove under!  I sat for a while but I didn’t care because the water was so calm and clear, I just enjoyed looking at the coral underneath me.  Two more turtles surfaced, but I was not in time for them either!  The other day the turtles were practically climbing on my board begging for their picture to be taken…..but today, they were camera shy!  I paddled back in perfect conditions and one more turtle popped up as I passed Kam III!   That made five turtles for the day.  The day was so nice, I figured that I had a good chance of a great swim too.  The water stayed calm and was very clear and I saw quite a few fish down at the reef!  It was a nice swim back too.  The wind just started to come up around 11:30 a.m. so it was perfect timing today!  I really could not have ordered a more perfect morning……..tomorrow I hope to be paddling one of the new boards!!!!!
