Turtle Day!!

Turtles!

Turtles!

Yesterday got away from me before I could post about paddling.  It was finally a nice day and the clouds cleared after days of gloomy clouds and choppy conditions.  There was a slight swell, and I did get hit with one wave on the way out, but once I got out on the ocean, it was really nice conditions!  I paddled down to the boat ramp and I got some great turtle photos…..but with about sixteen turtles…..most of them were not hanging around.  After the kayak fisherman died after having his foot bitten off by a shark in Makena on Monday…….maybe the turtles were on alert too!  I make it a point to never hang my feet over the side of my board for good reason!  The conditions stayed nice all the way back to Kam I and a turtle surfaced as I was paddling into the area.  I got a photo of that turtle too!  I heard reports that the water visibility was poor but I went swimming anyway and it was poor alright….almost zero visibility!  I stopped short of the reef and turned around because I couldn’t see anything.  It sure was a beautiful day though!!  Hopefully the water will clear up soon…..
