Turtle Day!!!!

Peek a Boo!

Peek a Boo!

Well, this morning I got down to the beach and it was windy!  I really wanted to go paddling so I went out anyway.  The wind was blowing from the south, so I headed south into the wind.  I paddled against the wind all the way down to the boat ramp and then the wind totally backed off and it got perfect!  I’m so glad I didn’t decide not to go out!  I practically had the place to myself and the turtles did not disappoint.  There were so many turtles!!!!  I took so many photos and in my hurry, some of them ended up blurry, but I got a few really good ones too!  The turtle up above had just dove under my board on the other side and then it came up and I got the photo!  Twice, five turtles came up at once and I was so excited!  I was surrounded by turtles most of the time I was there and I think I counted over twenty turtles, even one really small baby turtle!  The wind stayed out thankfully so I paddled back in nice conditions.  When I was paddling in I saw my husband swimming out there too!  I was lucky enough to have a calm swim and although the reef is still not very clear, I still swam with a Spotted Eagle Ray and I swam back to Kam I with a turtle!  What a great day and it sure was beautiful!!!
