As you can see…..the water was pure glass this morning! I headed straight to the boat ramp in search of turtles and ran into a paddling friend briefly, and up popped my first turtle! Down at the boat ramp the water was like glass and no wind was blowing. I got a late start so I didn’t plan to stay very long, but the turtles must have figured it out because they started popping up! Fifteen at the boat ramp and one at Kam II! The turtles were like little “jack in the boxes”…..popping up and down. The very top of Haleakala was in view and perfectly clear too! At one point, I was surrounded by six turtles all at once! I paddled back in perfect conditions and it only got somewhat windy when I went for my swim. I decided not to hang out down at the reef since the visibility wasn’t very good. It was a beautiful day all around!!
