Turtles!!

Hello there!

Hello there!

It was a beautiful morning on Maui today!  Well, almost all days are beautiful here on Maui, but today was exceptionally nice.  I had just started paddling when a turtle popped up on my way out!  Then I paddled on south and just as I was passing Kam II, the wind kicked up.  It was windy the rest of the way down to the boat ramp, but then the wind backed off a bit.  I paddled up between two turtles right away!  Then two more turtles surfaced and I paddled over to them.  A paddling friend showed up and then more people began to paddle in, including the pontoon snorkel boat.  We decided to head back because the water was getting choppy and the wind was threatening again.  Just as we passed Kam III, two turtles popped up by the buoy!   Then a third turtle surfaced too.  That was eight turtles for the day!  I got some good photos too.  Paddling from Kam II was a lot of work with the wind blowing from the north.  I had to really work to get back to Kam I!  The wind didn’t back off either, so my swim was a bumpy one.  I swam down as far the reef, but turned around because the water wasn’t very clear.  I also took a walk down to Charley Young Beach and back because the tide was low.  The wind was just not going away today but it still was a beautiful day!!
