Fourteen Turtles!!

Surrounded!

Surrounded!

When I woke up today, I  immediately looked out the window and could see no wind blowing!  Then it was a mad rush to get my act together to go paddling because I just knew it was going to be good.  Without the winds, the vog is creeping in again but I wasn’t going to let that ruin my day!  I headed straight for the boat ramp.  Just as I was passing Kam III, my first turtle popped up!  Down at the boat ramp the turtles didn’t disappoint either!  I was immediately surrounded by six turtles……and then two……and then four more!  I was snapping photos  like crazy and the turtles were happy to pose!  One of the turtles came right up to my board and gently bumped me…….it was definitely trying to get my attention.  It was quite a turtle day and I was the only paddler at the boat ramp!  By the time I had easily counted thirteen turtles……another turtle surfaced by me, so that made fourteen turtles for the day!  I paddled back is nice conditions, but the vog continued to creep in until it looked overcast.  Luckily the water visibility is pretty good so my swim was very enjoyable too!  I like the calmness of no wind blowing……but then the vog creeps in from the Big Island.  I guess you can’t have everything, but at least it comes close most of the time!  I hope the weekend is nice too!
